So our nightmare has come true. Pat Burrell won his second World Series ring, this time with the San Francisco Giants. And he did it on the Rays’ dime.
It was kinda nice to see Burrell go 0-13 with 11 strikeouts in the Fall Classic. The final four at bats (3 strikeouts) were as a DH, and all of the at bats were against AL pitching. So there was that.
But if there is any justice in the world, the Devil will now give Burrell ED, and the Giants will give Andrew Friedman half of Burrell’s World Series bonus.
