AJ Burnett agrees to join Yankees

ESPN is reporting that AJ Burnett just joined CC Sabathia in the Yankees spending spree. He's agreed to a 5 year, $82.5M deal. Between him and CC the Yankees have just guaranteed nearl 1/4 of a BILLION dollars to two players. Opt out clauses never end well for the team, though I'm not entirely sold on his health so Toronto may still come out ahead.

It'll be interesting to see how this affect Derek Lowe's price since the Braves have failed to land Peavy and Burnett. Might they turn their attentions towards Lowe? Could the Yankees make it 3/3 and add Lowe to their rotation as well? Does the economy ever really affect them?
