If the Pirates can bring him back would you sign him to a strict one year deal or possibly try to work a mutual option for 2015?

I'm not sure he wants two, but no I don't think I would go two guaranteed.

I'm of two minds regarding handling older players. On the one hand, you've got a guy who's still probably got gas in the tank and contribute and you hate to see him finishing his career somewhere else (my soccer team is ruthless for letting still good, but formerly great, players go too early). On the other, he is aging and the drop will occur at some time, and it will probably be drastic. Since Burnett has been mulling retirement I don't think I'd want him for two years. But I see no reason whatsoever to not sign him now.

I have one thing to say:

"Well, sh*t."
