Open Thread: Pineda, Best Bullpen, Burnett, Soler

Good evening all.  Still no trade yet involving Burnett.   Some twists and turns with the rumors today.  Also Buster Olney tweeted the the Yankees are in the running for Jorge Soler.  I wrote about him early in the winter click here to read that. Here are some other links to get you through the night.

* The Washington Post reports that Pineda has already joined the team for some early workouts.

* has an article ranking the best bullpens and the Yankees earned the top spot.

* According to CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman, the Pirates remain the likeliest trade candidate for A.J. Burnett.

This is your open thread feel free to comment about whatever you like.

Enjoy the nite.

  1. Anyone else besides me surprised that Oswalt isn’t signed yet?

  2. I think a lot of the reason Oswalt hasn’t signed yet is because of Oswalt himself. Very early in the process he send he only wanted to pitch for the Rangers or Cardinals. And when the 2 teams you want to pitch for most don’t have an opening for you you’ve pretty much painted yourself into a corner. At least that’s my opinion.

    • Totally agree. But you would have to figure another team would make a leap at him. I wonder if he doesn’t get what he wants if he just hangs it up or swallows his pride and pitches for a lot less.

  3. Matt, looks like Valentines Day will have come and gone (in just a little under 2 hours) without any news or finalization of the AJ Burnett trade. Well there is always tomorrow.
