I can’t remember trade talks/rumors that have gone on this long. Especially not for a pitcher as mediocre as A.J. Burnett. But they’re still going on.
But today Jim Bowden said that the end is nigh:
NYY-PGH close to finalizing deal w/ Burnett.should get done in next 24 hours according to source;NYY weighing one last offer from other team

Buster Olney concurs, though he didn’t put the hard time frame on it. Whatever the case, I’ll be happy to see this one end, just so that I don’t have to pretend to care about it anymore.
