Burnett loved NY (or at least its location)

Posted on: December 16, 2008 6:04 pm
 
When A.J. Burnett chose the Yankees over the Braves last week, the assumption was that it was the guaranteed fifth year on a contract that made the difference. And maybe it did, because sources said that the Braves, while they included an attainable vesting option for a fifth year, refused to simply guarantee it.

But when Burnett's agent told the Braves that they had lost out, and that Burnett was going to the Yankees for $82.5 million over five years, he didn't talk about the contract terms. Instead, he simply explained that New York is closer to Burnett's Maryland home, and that Burnett preferred to stay closer to home.

So maybe Burnett preferred the Yankees all along, and just used the Braves' interest to help him get the Yanks to guarantee the fifth year of the deal (which they were initially reluctant to do).

with cabrera, you are proving the opposite of the point. he was traded to the tigers. he did not choose detriot over some other place because he could get more money there. the marlins choose detriot because they gave up the best package of young players, and detriot only did it knowing they could sign cabrera to an extention. if cabrera was all about the money, he would have refused an extention, and waited until he hit the open market to sign a deal, where teams could compete by offering him the most money. your logic is backwards.
