All right, I might have been a bit harsh on ol' Jeromy (I can't spell my name) Burnitz. I still think, nay, insist, that Mike Cameron is far and away superior...but Cameron might cost us prospects and is more of an injury risk, as he's coming off wrist surgery in the offseason. My only hope is that Purpura doesn't go overboard with this contract; Burnitz is 35, and at the most that I can 'recommend' is 2 years, hopefully for no more than 5 million. Burnitz can still put up a decent OBP, though I can say with confidence that an OF of Jason Lane / Jeromy Burnitz / Lance Berkman has an excellent chance of being the worst defensive OF in baseball.
