The Pirates' General Manager Neal Huntington really needs to get his finger off the trigger and not send any of their prospects to the Yankees for Burnett.
In the past week, the Yankees have been actively seeking a way to cut ties with the pitcher that they signed to a massive five-year, $82 million contract after a stellar year in Toronto in 2007.
While they have not sniffed a winning record since their appearance in the 1992 National League Championship Series, Pittsburgh would not be making a smart decision by taking on Burnett and his rumored $10 million salary for the season.
In the past few seasons. the management of the Pirates has been smart in their moves, acquiring some good talent and translating to the best record last season since the 2004 season.
So, Pirates fans, do you want your team to make the trade for the 35 year-old Burnett even if it’s just as a rental for the 2012 season?
