Man, the Jays are going to have a great rotation. Well, for the half a season Halladay and AJ will be healthy.

But we're all rooting for you guys to knock Boston and New York to the bottom of the division. Good luck.

1. Beckett
2. Burnett
3. Pavano

Pavano may have the lowest era, but when you miss 80% of the season because of nagging injuries, it doesn't really matter.

Sounds like a good trade-off to me. ;-D

Great signing by the Jays, getting the best pitcher on the market this year... ;-D

I'm a little hesitant about Ricciardi's 3 year extension into 2010, because I want to see this team do something first, but he's done a pretty good job thus far in his 4 seasons here..

ESPN is reporting that Burnett has an opt out after three years. Burnett will earn $7 million next year and $12 million in each of the following four, so he'd make $31 million before he could opt out. Since no one else is saying it, we will: this is a very good signing for the Blue Jays. Burnett is risky, but he's the one pitcher out there capable of being a dominant force for the next several years. If you're going to take a chance, it's much better to spend $11 million per year on Burnett than $7 million-$8 million on Paul Byrd or Matt Morris. And, frankly, everyone on TV and the papers expressing shock and disbelief at this deal just hasn't been paying attention. This doesn't raise the market for everyone else. Every team in MLB knew that Burnett could and likely would get this type of contract as a free agent. Deal with it. The money is out there, and it's going to get spent.


It looks like Burnett also has an opt out in the deal as well, though who backs out of 24 million dollars? Rotoworld seems to like the signing, as well.

This will make the Jays a much stronger team next year, they just need to add a few productive hitters to become a true contender (which I admit, is much easier said then done). I've heard Wilkerson, Mench and Overbay as possibilities.

Through the age of 28:

Won-Loss records:

Burnett: 49-50
Johnson: 49-48
Schilling: 43-42

Hopefully A.J. follows suit to what those other two did. ;-)

I still don't agree with ever letting Delgado go. Burnett and Ryan are obviously good uses for that cash, though.
