The Pat Burrell One-Two

Pat Burrell retires with more World Series titles (2) than World Series hits (1), which is not that hard to do ... if you are a pitcher. And he wasn't.

He also retires as one of only two overall No. 1 picks to win a World Series with two different teams (2008 Phillies, 2010 Giants). Darryl Strawberry (1986 Mets, 1996 & 1999 Yankees) is the other.
