More on the potential A.J. Burnett trade, from Jon Heyman:

word is, #pirates willing to pay $10M of aj's $33M. #yankees have been pushing for something closer to a 50-50 split ...

#yanks also seek ok prospect back, which pirates hadnt agreed to. still, despite the differences, decent chance to happen

We'll see what "ok prospect" means. If it's an Aaron Baker or Brooks Pounders type of prospect, that's fine with me. Also, expecting the Pirates to take on $16.5 million for a player with Burnett's current trade value is quite a lot. $10 million is reasonable.
