    Great signing. Wow did we ever need this.

    Curious to see if there's a no-trade clause involved with his preference to be very close to his home in Baltimore.

    He will completely regress with that park and lack of defense

    Good amount of money, it's a one year deal. But why the Phillies?

    I like this fit. Low commit to a talented, older veteran ready to win now...It's what the Phillies need obviously as that roster continues to transition out of the 2000's.

    Their roster is older but we're not talking **** older players here. We're talking guys like Lee, Hamels, Rollins, Utley...guys with pedigree who deserve and have earned the right to play for a team/franchise that looks to win. It's still a roster turning over and it just can't go from old to young overnight - someone like Burnett fills a gap and will probably do it in a productive manner. He'll most likely be more productive than the guys taking spots 3-5 in the rotation, has more experience doing things like winning baseball games than someone like Miguel Gonzalez does, the commit is low...The fit's pretty obvious honestly and the Burnett/Phillies rumor have been going since he hit FA.

    Proximity to his home I believe. It was between the Phillies, Pirates and Orioles because of their closeness to Baltimore.

    Phillies have the money to take a chance with this guy.

    #3 behind Lee and Hamel is shaky with Kendrick and Hernadez and AJ might be their 3.

    For 1 year, why not if they have the extra money? Now Gonzalez, Kendrick and Fausto can slide into the 4 and 5 spots with less pressure on them. Not that the Phillies are going to win anything with this move (barring a miracle), but they can at least flirt with .500 or slightly better now.

    I guess.

    If I was Burnett, and had his talent, I would be looking for a one year deal on a rotation where I felt I could win. I wouldn't feel that going to Philly

    But Hamels and Lee and Burnett is a decent rotation

    I wonder how he might regress though going back to a smaller park.
