Pat Burrell is a great Phillie, not because he was always a great player (he wasn't), but because he survived the lean years -- both the club's and his own -- without alienating the fans who stuck with this franchise from back before it was popular and cool. He tallied some decent career numbers that put him in nice company, but more importantly, he also won a championship here before it was all over. If you can't appreciate that legacy, what are you watching for?

Nice to see Pat come home and retire a member of the Philadelphia Phillies.
