Phillies fans will see a familiar face when the San Francisco Giants come to town this weekend, Pat Burrell. Burrell caught on the with the Giants after released by the Rays early in the season. Burrell was terrible in Tampa, but in San Francisco he’s looked much more like the guy we remember as a Phillie.
He was asked what he think his reception will be when he makes his return to Philadelphia.
“I don’t know,” he said with a laugh. “It could go either way. It’s going to be exciting, and that’s all you can say. I’m looking forward to going back, the whole deal. We’re going to try to go there and win.”
This isn’t Scott Rolen. People love Burrell. He’ll get cheers like he has every other time he’s come back.
