I have to admit I developed a soft spot for Pat Burrell. It developed the end of last season. He finally found his swing.
He lumbers in the outfield and moves down the first base line like a freight train versus the Acela like speed of Ryan Howard. For a big boy Howard can move.
I was calling for his head for years but no one would take him because of his huge price tag. This year, when da boys bats were cold as ice, Burrell kept us in the mix.
For the first time in his career, he deserved to be an all star.
Yeah, he has been struggling but so has poster boy Utley.
Burrell stepped up and found his groove when we needed him the most, truly the sign of a gamer.
Lots of kisses to him and Manuel.
Re-Sign him next year for a reduced salary. He has earned the right to end his career in Philly.
