Trade him for a bag of sweaty balls and athletic socks.

The Orioles would take him is they got him for hardly anything. He lives in Maryland and would probably the best pitcher on the team.

How about the Twins? they took Pavano and he gave them a few decent years. Or what about making him a reliever?

Yeah but the great part of him getting TJ surgery is contractually, the RS now have an option to add another year at league minimum. You KNOW the RS FO is cashing in on that unless he's even worse after surgery than he was before. So either way as a Yankee fan it's a win win.

"I’m sure he’f find his groove against the Yanks in a heartbeat if he went back to the BJ’s… that’s Yankees law…." He was also lights out against the RS too when he played for the Jays.

Rosenthal is reporting that the Yankees and Pirates have discussed Burnett, but were not close to a deal. Burnett can't block a trade to Pittsburch.

At least he's out for this year. I know, one year, but I'll take it.

Saw it sort of the same way m'self, 1943'. I thought he'd be "kind of useful". But the beast that we saw last season? Hell no. Never saw that coming at all. The return on Napoli was pretty poor, true, but, given what was out there for him in return, kind of understandable, given that no one saw that Mike Scioscia was Mike Napoli's main problem. But hey, Anthopoulos got Mathis, now. Scioscia's "number one guy". If things go to form, Mathis will be as awful as Napoli was great. I'm dreading seeing that guy in a game.

Yeah, I predicted him to be useful but maybe not have the season he had. I said at the time that trading Napoli, a guy good for 20 HRs, for another over-the-hill BP arm was a bad move. I figured he could catch and sort of mentor Arencibia, spell Lind at 1B, and get some ABs at DH.

we've been hearing this for months... so much for shopping him very quietly.

Toronto??? If there's one team AJ has historically been lights out against, it's the Yankees... I'm sure he'f find his groove against the Yanks in a heartbeat if he went back to the BJ's... that's Yankees law....

And, the RS should keep Lackey, .. signed every AL team fan.

"Would you prefer to exile him to Pittsburgh or Colorado?" How about Toronto?

SWBG@ET: did anyone see Napoli doing what he did? C'mon, show me the evaluation that called Naps as the monster that he became. In fact, the only person who should have seen that coming was Scoscia. Napoli being undervalued rests on Scoscia and Scoscia alone. AA made the right call, all things considered: he had pretty good prospect in Arencebia, a veteran back up in Molina, and he didn't need a guy as young as Napoli, with the rep Scoscia saddled him with, on the team. The Rangers did (Washington has a pretty good history dealing with defensively deficient guys so Napoli's rep wouldn't bother him), and BOOM caught the best deal in the majors last season because of Mike Scoscia. Now, if you wanna hang someone on AA, you might consider Colby Rasmus...

Cleveland will take him. They are pretty good at taking overrated pitchers after they have had 1 good season.

Just don't trade him in the AL East! The only team he can dominate is the Yankees. I don't want to see that.
