Game 104 Open Thread: Pat Burrell Induction Night

Tonight is Pat Burrell's Wall of Fame induction ceremony, and let us all thank the good Lord for that. Cole Hamels had his goodbye press conference today after his trade to the Rangers was finalized, so I think a lot of us are feeling very emotional right now. If Pat the Bat wasn't having his night, what the hell would I be talking about here? I'd just post Cole Hamels highlights along with Youtube videos of babies crying.

I don't even have to say anything about Pat Burrell. I just have to type his name a few more times and presto, I'm suddenly talking about Pat Burrell!

I suppose I should post today's lineup.

Today's Lineups

Nick Markakis - RF Cesar Hernandez - 2B
Cameron Maybin - CF Odubel Herrera - CF
Freddie Freeman - 1B Maikel Franco - 3B
A.J. Pierzynski - C Ryan Howard - 1B
Adonis Garcia - 3B Domonic Brown - RF
Jace Peterson - 2B Freddy Galvis - SS
Andrelton Simmons - SS Cody Asche - LF
Eury Perez - LF Cameron Rupp - C
Williams Perez - RHP David Buchanan - RHP

Sure, I could talk about that lineup, but you'll never guess what I just found!

If you're feeling sad about Cole Hamels, I have a solution for you. Let us all, as a community, pull together and start talking about Pat Burrell.

Pat the Bat's induction ceremony is streaming live on the Phillies website, but I've saved you a step and embedded it here.

Discuss that game, but mostly Pat Burrell, in the comments below.
