The agent for star free-agent pitcher A.J. Burnett is telling teams they're only considering offers of five years or more, according to league sources. Burnett is drawing interest from several teams, including at least the Yankees, Braves, Nationals and Orioles, and possibly also the Red Sox.

The Yankees were intending to make a four-year offer this week but have been shut out by the five-year demand. One person familiar with their talks suggested the sides are talking "parameters,'' but it isn't believed the Yankees have said the two magic words: five years.
