PITTSBURGH (93.7 The Fan) — Aces in baseball make a lot of money, especially when they hit the free agency market.
Pirates ace AJ Burnett will enter free agency after the 2013 season and, while he brings a lot to the table, his age plus his declining performance has many wondering if he is worth the high-dollar price tag he will command.
