Burrell's Hot

The storyline on the Phillies in September has been that Howard and
Rollins got hot and have carried the team. Gradually people have
started to realize that others have contributed significantly--some in
spots like Dobbs, Feliz, and Utley while others have consistently been
sharing the load though in lower profile roles like Victorino, Werth,
and Ruiz.

And throughout it all Burrell's been struggling mightily...until now.

A streaky player his entire career, Burrell seems to have finally
shaken off the rust as in the four games since Saturday, he's hit two
home runs and a double. When Pat's hot, he can carry a team. If this
is indeed Pat turning the corner, he couldn't have chosen a more
opportune moment.
