Yankees | Burkett Contacted

The Boston Globe's Gordon Edes reports the New York Yankees contacted free-agent SP John Burkett (Red Sox). Burkett, 39, wants to return in 2004 but believes his career may be over. Burkett last pitched in Game 6 of the ALCS versus the Yankees. "If that was my last game, it's pretty cool that they gave me the ball in an elimination game," said Burkett. "But now I can't get a job? How do you explain that?"
