Burrell thanks Philly fans



New Rays DH Pat Burrell thanked his former Phillies team and fans Friday, taking out half-page ads in the Philadelphia Inquirer and Daily News.

Burrell, who played nine years for the Phillies before being allowed to leave as a free agent, thanked the fans for their support, and said he hoped they could meet again in October - in a World Series rematch.

Burrell thanked the Phillies organization for allowing him to fulfill his dream to be a pro ball player and the fans for their support through "good times and bad.''
