I don't know why anyone would look at Burrell's hot start in a bad light. So what if he doesn't keep this up, I have him in tons of leagues and if he goes cold for a week bench him and rotate other guys in. You've still got the amazing stats from him, and you send him to the bench if he doesn't keep putting up solid numbers for the year, and if he does awesome keep him on the team.
I am constantly looking to trade guys who are valued extremely high (Trading Preston Wilson and Troy Glaus) and get some good value away from it, but with Burrell I think he can put up solid stats for the whole year. If I'm wrong and he goes cold for about 6 games, bench him until he proves he can hit again. Still get to keep all those wonderful numbers.
Plus, Burrell's numbers now let me have Geoff Jenkins sit on the bench until he learns to swing again.
...Boston papers now and then suffer a sharp flurry of arithmetic on this score; indeed, for Williams to have distributed all his hits so they did nobody else any good would constitute a feat of placement unparalleled in the annals of selfishness. -Updike
