OK, two things: 1) It's the NY Daily News, so take it with a grain of salt (or fifty), and 2) Nobody else is carrying the story I don't think.
However, The New York Daily News is reporting that Boston will land AJ Burnett this week and sign him to an extension. Theo Epstein denies, but that also means nothing because GMs deny lots of things all the time.
I hope it isn't true. The only thing worse than not getting Burnett is Boston or New York getting him.
