Commentary: Vote For Burrell

How a guy like this is excluded from the All-Star game is beyond me:

284 AB, .278 AVG, .411 OBP, .585 SLG, 21 HR, 53 RBI, 47 R

Pat Burrell deserves to be in the All-Star Game. There’s no reason whatsoever why he shouldn’t playing. Phuture Phillies has devoted a whole post to the Burrell-for-All-Star campaign. Check it out.

This isn’t just about Burrell this year. It’s about a guy who has hit 239 career home runs in nine seasons. It’s about a guy who has been one of the great Phillies of all time. It’s about a guy who has become a fan favorite in Philly after years of torture. Burrell has never played in the All-Star game, yet here are some guys who have:

  • Shea Hillenbrand
  • Cesar Izturis
  • Felipe Lopez
  • Morgan Ensberg

And I just looked at the 2005 rosters. Seriously, let’s get Burrell in the game. Vote now.
