HR - 3 - 1st(T)RBI - 9 - 1st(T)AVG - .435 - 5th
Yes for too early or yes because Burrell is going to dominate all season and achieve the triple crown?*Found this interesting tid-bit:1988: New York's Gary Carter hits a double with two outs in the ninth inning, then gets caught by Steve Jeltz's "hidden ball trick" for the final out. It was Carter's 34th birthday.
TS NEVER TOO EARLY! these stats are obviously continuing through the whole season. if Manuel didn't replace burrell with a defensive replacement every game (which worked wonderfully yesterday) then burrell would hit 75 HRs a year...
The bat is well and truly on his way. Go champ.
Victorino will improve significantly as the season progresses, so that should help Burrell improve his RBI rate.Burrell's HR rate should increase as the weather gets warmer. The increased HR rate should help him get his SLG over 1.000 (it's currently only .957).His BA will fall a little, but probably not below .415.I calculate a 91.236% chance that Burrell wins the Triple Crown this season.
You're my boy Burrell... and clearly not only Triple Crown, but MVP as well... people were right to question whether the Phightins could have 3 MVPs in a row, but of course they were over looking my boy... Chase will have to wait until next year. Now if only Charlie would realize the defensive genius that is Pat Burrell and leave him in for 9 innings instead of 7... He's good for an extra 10 HRs and 25 RBIs with all those extra at bats!
I love that everyone is jumping on the Burrell bandwagon, there's still room, but hurry!
Lefty Perez to face Phils today, maybe a long day for Howard, Utley, and Company.
Werth will start for Jenkins, but I think Taguchi should start in CF for Victorino. Someone needs to install a pop-up blocker on Shane's hard-drive.
The Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs are off to a horrible start- no wins through 5 or 6 games now.Double A Reading is doing well, with Greg Golson hitting decently and stealing 6 bases so far.Adrian Cardenas is ripping up in Clearwater too.
"As long as we whip them, we don't have to make a big deal out of it," manager Charlie Manuel said yesterday after the Phillies' 5-3 win over the Reds at Great American Ball Park. "They'll talk, we'll hit. That's the only way I see it."
Too early? Nah, I doubt it considering the guys at the drink rail behind me on Opening Day were chanting "MVP" everytime Pat came up to bat.
Men with alcohol seem to love Burrell...beergoggles?
