It has now become official. Burrell has signed with the Rays. I think this is a great deal for the Rays. Great job!
MLB.com is reporting the Tampa Bay Rays are pretty much set to sign OF Pat Burrell to two years at $16 million.
I’m surprised Burrell is willing to sign that contract. I would’ve thought he would’ve gone for more years since he is only 32 years old. He could have gotten more years from another team.
Looks like I might be getting another Christmas present. Burrell will be out of the National League.
