Rangers probably out on A.J. Burnett

In the DMN today, Jon Daniels suggests that the five year deal A.J. Burnett wants may knock the Rangers out of the bidding. Daniels seems to indicate that the Rangers don't want to go five years on a contract for a pitcher.

That's good news, I believe. Whoever ends up with Burnett is likely going to regret it. And avoiding five year deals for pitchers isn't a bad general policy.
