Jays looking to deal Burnett for a SS

According to ESPN.com, the Blue Jays are looking to deal starting pitcher A.J. Burnett for a shortstop because they are not impressed with play of Mini Me or John McDonald.

Rumor has it an American League GM is quoted as saying, "They're offering Burnett to any team that needs pitching."

Well the Cubs need starting pitching and they have a decently skilled shortstop riding the pine...so Cedeno (and perhaps a pitching prospect) for Burnett?

Sounds like both side would be getting a decent deal out of this. What do ya think?

Just a little late afternoon trade speculation for everyone.

If that trade

could be made, it makes alot of sense. Why not look into a deal for P Martinez as well? It would cost the Cubs next to nothing and his experience and savvy might be just what this rotation needs.
