Well, cockiness can be both an asset and a liability and in Burrell's case, his cockiness is working against him this year. Mike Schmidt, a Hall-of-Famer, offered to help him with his mechanics but Burrell refused. Then he had the nerve to say there'd be "problems" if he got sent down to AAA. So what -- let him get mad, maybe it's the kick in the a*s he needs. Send the primadonna down, let him work on his hitting and then bring him back when he shows improvement. He's dragging the Phils down with his "me" attitude, not to mention his crappy year so far. The fact the Phils have done nothing to address the situation really makes me mad, too.
Don't get me wrong, Burrell is far from the only problem the Phils have this year but he's bleeding this team to death.
