I'm Baaaack!  Burrell Returning to Giants

Earlier this year, Pat Burrell's career was in jeopardy and his life was at a crossroads. 

"I really don't know what I'll do when I'm done with baseball," Burrell said in May.  "It's a little scary."

What a difference a few months (and  a World Series trophy) makes.

The San Jose Mercury News is reporting the Giants have agreed to a one-year, discounted deal for the 34 year-old outfielder.  Perhaps Burrell will be a role player coming off the bench -- or even compete for the starting spot in left field.

Either way, Burrell's presence in the Giants Clubhouse was -- and is -- invaluable.  His 18 home runs were also a major source of power.

The Giants will finalize this deal as early as Thursday afternoon.
