Man or Machine – Pat Burrell or Lee Majors ?


Pat Burrell is off to incredible season start, but it just so happens that this is a contract year for him.  Will this help or hurt his chances at remaining in the city of brotherly love?  Burrell’s hot streak would help him you would think, but the Phillies maybe waiting to cash in on his performance to continually improve their rotation for 2009.  Pat has already expressed his interest in staying in Philadelphia and wants to remain a franchise player.  His performance so far this year has not only been record setting for his career, but also for the ball club.  Pat continues to be a clutch player for the team at the plate and has also improved defensively since his foot problems have healed.  I would not expect hear about any contract talks until the Phillies have safely reached the post season once again.  If they do not make it that far this year we may see Jayson Werth as the Phils new left fielder going into 2009.
