Confirmed Fox: Karen Burnett


By
Instead of offering any sort of relevant free agent or trade news today, I've opted to share a different piece of interesting Blue Jays news (besides, all you need to do is refresh your browser every 5 minutes on MLBTradeRumors.com anyway. Tim's got it all covered).

Thanks to woodpeck at The Hills are Alive for tipping us off about this possible picture of the elusive Karen Burnett, wife of A.J. Burnett. It's a photo of the wives/girlfriends of Toronto Blue Jays Players. I've drawn with arrows indicating which two of these women might be Karen Burnett, because I'm not totally sure. I also discovered a second photo below of A.J.’s wife by methods which I cannot share (*cough* Facebook search).

All we really know about her is that she is rumoured to be a former stripper, and she also apparently is not a fan of flying. As part of Burnett’s contract with the Jays, he was entitled to 8 limo trips per season for his wife from Toronto to Baltimore. If you’re curious, that’s about a 9 hour one-way trip, so Karen must really not like to fly.

Location wise, it would make most sense for A.J. to sign with the Baltimore Orioles, since his family already lives in Bowie, Maryland which is very close to Baltimore. But since the Braves are willing to offer Burnett 5 years, he might just say “F*ck It” and play with Atlanta anyway. No matter where A.J. does eventually sign, he will probably have some clause in his contract regarding transportation for his wife.

So maybe it’s not Burnett’s agent Darek Braunecker that’s calling the shots, but in fact it might be Karen Burnett that could determine where A.J. plays.

  1. 8 Limo rides?! That is ridiculous. No wonder he is looking to sign with Baltimore.

    Maybe the Braves will offer a train pass bonus if Burnett signs with them.

  4. Forget Karen Burnett. Who the hell is the hottie on the right with the silver tie in her hair and can we get some more pictures of her?

  5. The one sitting down in front is Reed Johnson's broad. Burnett's could be the one in the center as I don't recognize that one. (I used to work for the Jays)

  6. @ woodpeck: I think my other goal for 2009 will be to procrastonate more! Actually, no idea yet - we'll save that for another post.

    @ Donny: thanks for the insight. It's actually suprisingly hard to find any dirt on the wives of Blue Jays players. I only other picture I found was of Scott Downs' and Jason Frasor's wives, and it was a SMALL picture.

  8. As for the group picture, none of them is Karen Burnett. No, she does not like to fly at all. Yes, she is a fox but no, not a former stripper. This comment is confirmed by someone close to the Burnrett family. Former O's fans turned to Yanks fan!!

  9. @ Anon: I didn't think any of the ladies in that picture were Karen, but a few kind of looked like her. I'm not sure where the former stripper rumour started, but since she's smoking hot that's an easy rumour to believe.

    I don't suppose you turned from an Orioles fan to a Yankees fan because the O's got screwed in Game 1 of the 1997 ALCS? The one where that kid pulled that ball into the stands?
