Blue Jays Staring Intently At Phillies

Jeff Blair of the Toronto Globe and Mail, who first reported the Phillies’ interest in Blue Jays starter AJ Burnett, said he spoke with Toronto GM JP Riccardi.

While Riccardi denied talks between the Phils and Jays, he said his team was “sitting on” the Phillies as much as any other team:

“We’re just looking at making ourselves better, going forward.”

This all means little, but it seems there is definite truth to rumors of the Phils heavily looking at Burnett. David Murphy in his blog says it’s about a 40-60 shot the Phils would get Burnett.
