09:13 AM ET 02.08 | If someone's going to steal A.J. Burnett away from his beloved Pirates, could it be the Washington Nationals? Speculation is going around baseball circles that the Nats could consider a late play for the talented Burnett at a time some other would-be contenders seem to be fading away. The Pirates rightly should have always been considered the favorite to land Burnett, considering how well that marriage has worked since he came over from New York. And with chances for the Orioles and Phillies reportedly diminishing, the Nats are seen as a team that could emerge as a possibility.

Very dumb because pitchers never get hurt during a 162 game season. Ask any manager or player.

never ever and who says so??pitchers get injury often and is a lie if they don't,
