A.J. officially is an ex-Yank

The A.J. Burnett trade is official. Burnett is a Pittsburgh Pirate.

He passed his physical and the commissioner approved the $18 million the Yankees are Fed-Exing to Pittsburgh.

Next, the Yankees expect to sign Raul Ibanez next and then, likely, Eric Chavez.

For now, though, the news is A.J. is no longer a Yankee.
