07:29 AM ET 01.21 | As pitchers and catchers near their reporting date, Pirates pitching coach Ray Searage has to take realistic approach to whether A.J. Burnett will be there. "I'm going without A.J. until I hear differently," Searage said last week. "I have to." Roughly three months have passed since Burnett, the free-agent right-hander who spent the past two seasons here, told KDKA-FM that he planned to return to the Pirates or retire. Burnett, 37, has given no indication of his plans, and Searage said he has not heard from Burnett despite reaching out. General manager Neal Huntington said last week that he continues to communicate with the Burnett camp. "Still working through the process," Huntington said. A recent report in the Baltimore Sun suggested that the Orioles were interested in Burnett.

He maybe still piss off about the Bucs not pitching him in the deciding game against the Cardinals in the Wild Card round, instead they will with a rookie.

The O's may make more sense for him. I believe he makes his off season home in the Baltimore area.

I think you have to tell Burnett to drop the deuce or get off the toilet.

Yeah! He needs to decide one way or the other.
