Wouldn’t be overly excited about a trade, unless they could get a Zambrano type deal and get him for just a couple of million per year.  Then again, I’m not overly excited about any of the free agent options available either.  I think I’d rather take a chance on someone like Burnett for a couple of cheap years than be stuck with Edwin Jackson for 5 years.

Even then might have to add another guy. I doubt the Yanks would pay $30 mill to take him.
