Excellent– a chance for Bat to come home and dampen just one more Philadelphia coed (or six).
At last night’s Sports Writers Association banquet in Cherry Hill – which is like the prom for local scriptuals, especially the older ones – Ruben Amaro was asked about the possibility of signing Pat Burrell to a one-day contract so the he could retire a Phillie. Todd Zolecki of Phillies.com fills us in:
Don't be surprised to see Burrell, who announced his retirement on Monday, sign a one-day contract and retire with the Phillies.
"We are considering it," Amaro said.
Golf claps for Rube. He may just be stiff-arming the public until we come to our senses and realize that Pat Burrell had one hit in obtaining two World Series rings… but we’ll take Rube’s word for it. Bring back Bat.
