Agent: Getting DFA’d isn’t a bad thing, another team will see your value and pick you up and you’ll get more playing time elsewhere.
Burriss: You think so?
Agent: I know so.
Burriss: …Dude, I just read I cleared waivers.
Agent: Oh. ..well that sucks.

Well he has the option of refusing an assignment to AAA and just becoming a free agent. But with the lack of success he’s had lately, I don’t who would give him any playing time…

can’t we just release him instead of indefinitely paying him $600k a year to be at AAA? Seriously, my dead grandmother hits for more power than him

I would assume he’s on a split contract. Since he is now off the 40-man roster he will not receive major league wages.

Didn’t the Giants cut Burress after the gun incident in 2008?

Pheeeew! This is great news. I was really fearful that we were going to lose another injury prone, weak hitting position player. It’s a shame when guys with speed can’t hit the ball out of the infield or coax a walk every now and then.

Darn. I was hoping the Nats would bring back the local kid for much needed infield depth

Phew. For a moment, I thought they had cut Hannibal Burress.
