Virginia has been a big Pat Burrell fan ever since she saw the darkly handsome young man first stride to the plate. The rest of us have been cooler, as his early-career promise seemed to wane. But he’s settled in as a decent prortector of Ryan Howard. And today, he delivered the biggest hit of his career – a 2-out, 3-run home run that broke open Game 4 of the Phils’ playoff series with Milwaukee. He added a solo shot later in the game, Jimmy Rollins and Jason Werth homered, too, and the Phightin’s are headed to the NLCS vs. the Dodgers.
All together now, “LA s–ks!”
