Today's exercise in perspective: A.J. Burnett is making 150% of what Gil Meche would have made this year.

16 of the 104 qualified pitchers in the Majors have a lower WAR than his currently mythical 1.0 fWAR. The Yankees are looking at paying the steep price of $16.5MM on a pitcher on pace for 1.3 WAR.

In 78.1 innings pitched in a Royals uniform, Paulino has produced 1.7 wins. They're paying their portion of the $790K due to Paulino this year.
