The Crack Of The Bat, The Middle Finger Of Pat Burrell

With the start of the 2007/2008 MLB season just hours away now, everyone's thoughts turn to how beautiful the game can be ... the crack of the bat, the roar of the crowd, the green grass, the fathers and sons in the stands with their mitts, and the asshole in the Phillies dugout gesturing to opposing manager Terry Francona that he should make love to himself.

That's Pat Burrell, who just planted a Daisuke Matsuzaka pitch in the bleachers. The exchange with his former manager Francona was apparently light-hearted and friendly, which is a little disappointing, as I was hoping this would be Burrell's new homerun celebration. Sort of like Sammy Sosa's kiss thing, except simpler and more direct.
