Just heard this on Mike and Mike and looked up the story. I'm a Yankees fan so I haven't been too impressed with Burnett as a pitcher but I'm glad to see him putting some of the money we gave him to good use.
Burnett is starting a college 529 fund for his teammate Daniel McCutchen's daughter, who is due in May, to get his number 34. I know this may not be completely selfless because of the tax implications but I think it's a pretty ingenious way for both guys to get what they want. Commence with rabble rabble about pro athletes and their excessive wealth. I still think it's a good story.
What's one tiny downside of having most of our 2013 class wrapped up so early? Lots of OT this summer.
