There isn't anything revolutionary in this story, but it's well written. Burton sounds like he's happy and fitting in well.

I'll add one thing that isn't in the story: I'm a little surprised there isn't more talk about trading him. He's only under control for one more year. He isn't pitching back to back game very often. His history suggests a long-term deal isn't a great idea. And there are teams looking for a really good reliever.
