Mets Inquire On Burnett

UPDATE, 12-5-07 at 1:52pm: Stark says that though the Mets inquired, there’s little chance the Jays trade Burnett to them.  They’re trying to collect power arms for 2008.

FROM 12-5-07 at 1:54am:

According to ESPN’s Jayson Stark, the Mets have inquired on Toronto’s A.J. Burnett.  Burnett’s opt-out effectively puts him on a one-year deal, but worse.

Burnett is definitely the frontline type of guy the Mets have been looking for, despite the injury concerns.  Those concerns plus the contract situation should definitely leave Burnett in the Mets’ price range.
