Your bat was your ticket out.
To that same old place that you slugged about.
Well the 3rd baseman has changed since you hit around,
But those at bats have remained and they've turned around.
Who'd have thought they'd lead ya (Who'd have thought they'd lead ya)
Here where we need ya (Here where we need ya)
Yeah we tease him a lot cause we've got him on the spot, welcome back,
Welcome back, welcome back, welcome back.
All it takes is one game, 2 home runs and 5 rbis (and a single to boot) to get people back on your side. Of course, they'll be throwing tomatos tomorrow, but today, today you are a hero Pat Burrell. Thankfully, Charlie didn't let it get to your head and you were still pinch defensed for, but hey, at least the fans are loving ya.
How much did this game help you?
It raised your batting average 20 points from .237 to .257.
It tripled your homerun total from 1 to 3.
It almost tripled your RBI total from 11 to 16.
Your OBP went up 10 points from .419 to .429.
Your SLG went up 76!!! points from .330 to .406.
And you overall OPS went from .749 to .835.
Since today is your big day, I think we'll take a look at some all time Phillies rankings for you, to remind people how much better you have been than they think (and how poorly our players have been over the years).
Not too bad Mr. Burrell. This is your day. You've earned it. Well, until the next game anyway.
