It won't be quite the same as Pat the Bat's return to Citizens Bank Park during the On Deck Series but Burrell will likely be the Rays' DH to start Saturday's game in Clearwater against the Phils. Pat's quote from the Ray's website via Scott Lauber:

"[Manager Joe
Maddon] asked me if I want to go, and I said, 'Sure, I'd like to go,'
for just no other reason than the obvious," Burrell told the Rays' Web
site. "I don't want to make more of it than it is. … Who knows what
kind of reception [he'll receive from Phillies fans] and all that other
stuff. We'll see. I'm looking forward to it. It's a game. You can't
hide the fact you've got some relationships with some people. And it's
good to see guys, that's the way I'm looking at it."
