So Burrell really hit that streak didn't he?


When the Rays first signed Pat Burrell,most of us fans were happy we signed a fulltime DH that could hit 30+HR.We didn't expect great stats from Pat,we didn't even ask for much.Just to keep producing the same way you did in Philly.Well obviously he has hit way below those standards.

 

All I heard about Pat Burrell early in the season was wait till he hits his streak.The season went on and Burrell  produced poorly.I still heard the same BS wait until he hits his streak.THe season still progressed and then around All Star break,Pat started heating up hitting a walk off HR and just hitting more.We all got hopeful it was the start of his first streak of the season.Then after the break he came out hitting 3 for 7 with a HR and 4 RBI.Now though he is 0 for his last 7 with 6Ks and a  walk.Over his last 7 games overall he is hitting .250 which is at least above his season average but is still low.Now I don't expect Pat to hit .300,.290,.280,or even .270.We all knew he would be a .250-.260 hitter.But we accepted that thinking he would hit 30+ HR.obviously he has not.He only has a measly 5 HR,same amount as catcher Navarro. to ESPN he is on pace for only 11 HR.Aybar has 7HR and a .288 avg through less games.Also one of the main reasons we brought him in for he is not even doing.Hitting lefties.He is only hitting .242 against lefties with no HRs.As much as I liked this signing when it was first released I still wondered even then why we couldn't have resigned Hinske or just put Aybar at fulltime DH.I really hope these are just struggles  from being a DH and next season he will be the real Pat the Bat(after he goes on a diet).My question is how much longer until he hits that streak(hopefully September when serious division play happens).Alright I'm done let the your on drugs and how stupid I am comments commence.
