Ka-ching goes the Yankee Cash Register

Probably more on this later, but briefly... The Yankees have apparently agreed to an other whopper contract. They're about to sign AJ Burnett to a 5 year deal, which will pay him $16.5 million per year. That means they have committed $243 million to two pitchers this week alone. It also means the Yanks will have the three top paid pitchers in the game: $23 million per year for CC Sabathia; $16.5 million to Burnett; and $15 million per year to Mariano Rivera.

Yes, they'll be tough this year. But what about next year and the year after and the year after...Because they've locked this guys in for many, many years: CC for 7 years, AJ for five. To me, that's the real question mark.

Life in the AL East just got even more interesting....
