Burks' curtain call

Ellis Burks was activated from the DL last Thursday by the Red Sox. He plans to retire after the season, and wants to do so in a Boston uniform. The Transaction Guy has a nice tribute to Burks.
Ellis Burks is not a Hall of Famer. He’s not even a guy about whom you can say, “well, if only he had stayed healthy, he could have been a Hall of Famer.” What he was, was a very good, sometimes great, player with bad knees who captured my attention by what he did on the field.
Since being activated, Burks has only had one plate appearance. He hit a single.

Here's hoping he has plenty to celebrate in another month.
