La Velle: Burton is healthy and happy
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.
