01:33 PM ET 07.18 | If he has his way, A.J. Burnett will survive the trade deadline. "I'm a Blue Jay and I plan on being here for the rest of the season," Burnett said last night. Burnett, after a first half which he describes as having "too many losses," enters tonight's start as the most tradeable asset the Jays have in advance of the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline. The speculation is fueled in large part by the opt-out clause in Burnett's contract, which opens the door at the end of this season for him to forgo the final two years of his five-year, $55 million (U.S.) deal and enter free agency.
