There's not really much new information here, as we knew the Pirates had shown interest in Burnett, but didn't like his salary. The interest from the Pirates has been described as "mild", and they don't like his 2015 player option. I guess the news here is that Bowden classifies the talks as alive.
Meanwhile, Jake Peavy is going to the San Francisco Giants, according to Jon Heyman.
