I wish him the best but let's be honest: a .625 OPS doesn't get it done. To be completely honest, although I know the Rays were after a RH bat, I wanted them to sign a lefty, Adam Dunn. He is younger than Pat and signed for less to play with the Nats. Meanwhile we've been watching Burrell press and not hit for a season plus now.
And let's not forget, in a lost season last year he and CC weren't gonna be hanging out in the off season. Anyway, no hard feelings Pat, but I hope you give a lot of the $16 large the Rays are paying you to whatever church you go to. After getting that money for nothing, giving something to your god beyond your clean living will be a good move. Seriously. Google Pat Burrel on deadspin if you don't know what I mean.
