Burrell: I Hate Leaving The Game Early

Pat Burrell told reporters he doesn’t like being taken out during the late innings of games:

“I’m upset, absolutely. I’m upset, and I have been for a long time. It’s not personal. I don’t want to ever come out of close games.”

He said the replacement issue is magnified more after a loss, which was the case yesterday. Burrell was pulled for Eric Bruntlett. The Marlins tied the game, Bruntlett did nothing at the plate.

It seems as if this is a pretty small concern for Burrell, as he reportedly voiced it calmly and threw in a jab to doubters. Of course, when things go wrong, doesn’t it seem as if more and more quotes surface? More on that soon.
