Rays to Get Burrell at 2 yrs/16 mil?

http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2009/01/rays-close-to-s.html

According to Ken Rosenthal, the Rays are close to signing Pat Burrell to a two-year, $16MM deal.  It'd be a solid move, as the Rays can increase his value by not using him in the field.  The '08 Rays struggled against lefties (.726 OPS) and Burrell crushes them (.952 OPS in '08).

Wow!

#1: This should significantly bring Giambi's/Dunn's/John Jaha's price down for us.

#2: We should try to outbid the Rays for Burrell at that price!
