Pat Burrell sure looks good in Rays colors (photo via The Tampa Tribune). And we have a feeling he will always look better in blue than Raul Ibanez ever will in Red.
(Hey Philly Fans..Pat wants you to say “hi” to your mother for him. WFC*)
Also from Marc Lancaster…Burrell admits that it will take him a while to adjust to being a most-days DH.
Burrell expects his pregame preparation to remain basically the same, “but once the game starts, I think that’s when I’ll probably have to change my program. If I could just go stand behind Carl in left, I think it’d be great.”
Lancaster also reports that Burrell has been seeking counsel from his friend and former teammate Jim Thome on life as a DH.
