According to Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times, the Angels are interested in left-hander Sean Burnett.

The Cardinals have also been linked to Burnett, and reports have indicated that several other teams could be involved. The 30-year-old posted a 2.38 ERA in 56 2/3 innings this past summer for the Nationals while holding left-handed batters to a .211/.245/.289 batting line.

I'd love this!

I really like what Dipoto is doing.

Instead of having a guy like Walden which is extremely unreliable, even though he can be lights out at certain moments

He's going for veteran steady relievers

I'd want Adam and Burnett personally

You can have Adams, Burnett, Madson, Fieri, Downs and Jepsen

and now THAT is a bullpen compared to the crap we had last year

the SP may still be an issue with only Hanson, Wilson and Weaver as locks
You like need a #2

I would also rather take a chance on a #5 via FA, then have richards.

I'd rather have richards as the first guy to call up if someone goes on the DL

Burnett has been pretty good over the last few season, but wildly inconsistent. Look at his k/9 in 2011 and then 2012. What happened?

His BB rate fluctuates, too, though the overall trend is down since 2009.

2011 he had a blip that took his WHIP to 1.32 and an ERA of 3.81. But 3 of the last 4 years, WHIP of 1.11-1.24 and ERA of 2.14-3.12. Plus he's a lefty, so that's a plus for our pen.

Seems like a good economical pickup. He might be had for $3 million, maybe $4. Plus he's a setup reliever. (and not a closer that loses focus in a setup situation, see Krod among others)

At first glance I thought this was about AJ Burnett. Carry on.

For a moment I thought this was going to be about AJ and I was ready to join AF25FAN and kidnap Dipoto before we had a rotation with AJ and Marmol in the pen.

No, we aren't at the Del Taco drive thru, and ordering a Sean Burnett, and getting an AJ Burnett, then just driving off and living with the mistake.

The collective number of sighs of relief that AW members will breathe after opening this thread has to be pretty considerable.

Maybe he's related to A.J. Burnett. That would suck.

Well in all fairness. Weaver is related to Weaver, and it hasn't sucked so far.

I do not have the time to read the whole thread, but I sure hope they don't pick up AJ Burnett.

I thought AJ was going to art school in Boston in order to be closer to Corey..?
