Ex-Phillies News: Burrell & Eaton

Our homeboy, Pat "The Bat" Burrell, officially retired this offseason, but that doesn't mean he's done with baseball. He's decided to stay on with the San Francisco Giants as a scout. He's currently helping to evaluate the Giants prospects. Something tells me he'd be better suited for scouting off-field talent in San Fran, but then again, I heard that area isn't really Burrell's cup of tea...if you know what I mean.


Not our homeboy, Adam Eaton, has made the news because of a paycheck snafu. The Arizona Diamondbacks have an outfielder in their farm system by the same name and he's been mistakenly getting the ex-MLB pitcher's payday. Not sure why Adam Eaton, the one we hate, not the one we don't know, is still getting paid. Adam Eaton, the pitcher, miraculously ended his career with a winning record (71-68), despite a ghastly 4.94 ERA/1.44 WHIP. Adam Eaton, the outfielder, has quite the bat and set of wheels- .340/.956, 133 R, 104 RBI, and 54 SB in 189 minor league games. Mysteriously, Eaton the pitcher retired was forced out of baseball in 2009 and Eaton the outfielder was drafted in 2010. Hmm...

Couple thoughts about Madson...

Thank God the Phillies didn't sign.

Stupid Boras for only getting him a 1 year deal. Good luck landing that big multi-year deal now Mad Dog.
