I feel very confident that Emmanuel Burriss will never amount to anything at the MLB-level. The guy is a scrub. He's got speed, but is horrible on the base paths and has a very low baseball IQ. For a guy with hardly enough pop to get the ball out of the infield, those aren't good traits to posses.

Very disappointed that Burriss never became the player that the giants FO envisioned him to be. They hoped like hell, but it just didn't come into fruition. Giants gave him a ton of opportunity, he will most be remembered for the diving play during Randy Johnson's 300th win.
Some of the most entertaining days on this message board was the Frandsen vs Burriss discussions.
Watching the Giants bullpen like:
- “He runs meetings like a coach. Basically, I’m playing with a coordinator on the field. He’s a football God. He sees everything, and he sees the big picture of everything." - Frank Gore on Andrew Luck
- "He is as smart as Peyton, as accurate as Brady, tougher than Ben and as athletic as RG3." - Anonymous Head Coach on Andrew Luck
We should have tried to see if the Burris for Bautista deal was still on the table before we let him walk...

Burriss could do 20/20 if we're talking Errors/Singles
Reds stole Fred Lewis too
I will never forgive the Giants for letting future Hall of Famer Todd Wellemeyer go :cry:
Minor League contract I believe, where he belongs.
