A.J. Burnett Rumors: Friday

2:45pm: Joel Sherman of the New York Post says both teams have guaranteed five years.  The Yankees are offering "just beyond" $80MM and the Braves at least that amount.  Sherman believes those to be the best and final offers and expects Burnett to choose sometime between today and Monday.

11:54am: Burnett is in "decision-making" mode, according to his agent.

9:05am: Kat O’Brien and Ken Davidoff of Newsday talked to Hal Steinbrenner, who said he’s optimistic about the Yankees signing A.J. Burnett.  They have a five-year, $80MM offer on the table.  It seems possible the Braves may have matched it, but it’s not confirmed.
