With The Blue Jays reeling from Roy Halladay's injury, they could be the favorites to land AJ Burnett. The key would be Burnett agreeing to a contract extension with the Blue Jays.
Apparently the Marlins covet Toronto's rookie left-hander Gustavo Chacin and Toronto will part with him if it lands them Burnett. ''If [Toronto] could sign Burnett, the deal would get done now,'' the source said. Stay tuned. Jul. 13 - 11:38 am et
What do you guys think of this trade? I honestly don't like it that much. Gustavo Chacin is going to be a great pitcher in the MLB and he's young, Burnett is getting older and is also an injury risk. Burnett can be amazing for us, but I don't think we should get him as a result of dealing Chacin in the process.
