BRADENTON, Fla. – Pitcher A.J. Burnett is mulling whether to retire after the 2013 season. But if he decides to keep playing, Burnett might consider an offer from only one team: the Pirates. “I enjoy it here and I enjoy these guys,” Burnett said Thursday after pitching three innings in his final spring training tuneup. “If I was to keep playing, I wouldn't want it to be anywhere else but Pittsburgh. My wife and I talk about it now and then. But it's something I've got to put on the back burner. I'm just going to concentrate on this season, one start at a time.”
