Moreno shows strikeout potential, but he’s not great, especially at 25. 

$5M this year and $8M next year for Burnett sounds pretty good to me.

I just read somewhere that the Pirates gave up Moreno and Cayones

The only thing I hope is that the same people who were calling for NH to pay this much or more to complete the deal won’t turn on him if Burnett is a bust.

For my part I won’t say I told you so if he fails and I’ll me more than happy to admit I was wrong if it works out.

Best #Yankees could do is salary relief (about $13M), 2 A-level prospects from #Pirates not considered much

From me…I’m loving this deal if minor leagers are not top 25 pirate prospects
