The Mikey/Melky Deal Is...

not done, per TBTSNBN.  But wait!  It's only on hold as the Yankees were too busy signing AJ Burnett to a 5 year, $82.5 million deal.  Tom H. suggests it might go down on Monday instead.

Tom seem pretty PO'ed at the Burnett signing too:

THAT MEANS THE YANKEES HAVE SPENT MORE THAN $240 MILLION TO SIGN PITCHERS CC SABATHIA AND BURNETT. AS A POINT OF REFERENCE, OWNER MARK ATTANASIO PAID $223 MILLION FOR THE ENTIRE BREWERS FRANCHISE.

GOOD TO SEE THE DECLINING ECONOMY ISN'T WORRYING THE YANKEES.

It is pretty amazing that two pitchers cost nearly a quarter of a billion dollars.
