  12. Pirates bet on depth, D to replace Burnett

    David Schoenfield

    The Phillies have agreed to a one-year deal with A.J. Burnett, which seems like an odd destination if he wants to play for a postseason contender. I recently ranked the Phillies 29th in my pre-spring training power rankings. While this move may sl...
