Yankees Sign Carl Pav ...err ...A.J. Burnett

Just in case you weren't sure that the evil empire was back in full swing, they've now put $243.5 million into TWO pitchers in the span of three days this offseason.

And just in case you thought they had learned their lesson their first time when the signed an injury prone former Marlin, they did not.  This time, it's A.J. Burnett.

And just in case you thought they'd go cheap and short term to minimize risk, they didn't  It's worth $16.5 million a year for FIVE years.

And just in case you thought they learned that rebuilding by throwing money at problems wasn't the way to go...they definitely didn't.

Congrats, morons.

edit: Yes, I know Burnett is better than Pavano, so no need to quote stats.  It's all about the money here, folks.  It's insane.
