Burrell gone for season!

Postby oakiedragon » Tue Aug 10, 2004 12:13 am

Well folks, it appears that everyone's favorite underachiever will no longer be underachieving this season. He's having season ending surgery on friday, so if any of you are holding him now is the time to drop. However if your in a keeper league....it's a tough call. He has the potential, but will he ever live up to it? As a Phillies Phan I sure hope so, but we'll have to see next year. So drop him like he's hot!

It's not a sealed deal yet. He was expected to take batting practice today and says he is determined to play soon this year. He could still miss the rest of the season though.

"News from the nurse's office
The magic words this week are "second opinion." After Pat Burrell traveled to Baltimore for another opinion on his left wrist, he decided to back off having a surgery that would end his season in favor of testing his newly splint less wrist in batting practice next week. Should things not go as well as he hopes next week, then surgery and an early end to the '04 campaign will probably be the answer for Pat. Chances are Burrell will end up missing the rest of the season, so fantasy owners shouldn't count on getting him back for the stretch run." - Brooks Peck, ESPN Fantasy Correspondent
