Burrell's Stats... 

I was looking at the Phils stats today and I noticed a fairly startling stat. Look at the difference in Pat Burrell’s GPA and ISO stats at home and away:

Burrell’s GPA / ISO:
Home: .338 GPA / .351 ISO
Away: .275 GPA / .091 ISO

GPA is interesting, but Burrell's road / home ISO is startling. And here is a stat that should make everyone stand up and take notice:

At-Bats per Home Run …
Home: 9.4 (94 ABs / 10 HRs)
Away: 110.0 (110 ABs / 1 HR)

I haven’t noticed any other Phils player with a similar difference. Abreu’s road ISO isn’t much lower than his home ISO: .270 (road) / .292 (home); Thome has a variance (.316 road, .443 home), but it isn’t dramatic and he still hits with considerable frequency on the road: a home run every thirteen at-bats, compared with one home run per eight at-bats at home.

I'm not sure what conclusions to draw from this information: does Burrell really love the home crowd? Is he rattled on the road? Is Citizens tailor-made for him? Is this inability to hit on the road residue of his 2003 imposion?

I'll let ya'll speculate ...
