Burrell was slumping through most of 2010 with the Tampa Bay Rays before he was designated for assignment and was made a free agent in the middle of May. The Giants brought Burrell in with a minor league contract after they called Buster Posey up. All he did down the stretch was go 77 for 289, hit 18 home runs and 51 RBIs and become an integral part of San Francisco's World Series victory.

Although the Giants have yet to specify the contract, Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports that it couldn't have gone any better for the Giants.

Burrell deal with worth $1M plus incentives. Hometown-friendly deal. Wanted to stay in SF.

Hard not to come back to a team whose fans might adore you for quite some time. Here are some of the highlights Pat the Bat racked up down the stretch (thanks to the commenters of McCovey Chronicles accumulating these).

With Aubrey Huff coming back, at least the two Giants players involved in the manliest of man-hugs after they won the World Series are returning, ensuring more testosterone coming to a Giants game near you.
