For the 1st half of this season Pat Burrell sucked. I could sugarcoat it and say he was subpar, but I like to be brutally honest, and he indeed did suck registering a .215 batting average with 32 runs, 37 rbi, 11 hr, and a measly .786 OPS. For someone making 13.25 million dollars that's pretty crappy. In fact, it was so crappy that Corey and I officially gave up on him. Wish we would have waited about a week longer, because as soon as the 2nd half started, Pat Burrell returned to being "The Bat". Since the All Star break Burrell has posted a .330 batting average, 36 runs, 53 rbi, 17 hr, and an astounding 1.112 OPS. Basically, he went from being a reason this club was failing to a reason this club is still holding on to hope. Pat Burrell's 2007 season has truly been a tale of two men, and I couldn't be happier being wrong in this case.
