Need there by another reason...

to dislike Burke as an Astro?  Besides the weak arm and slow bat, we have this pearl:

"The Cubs were more my team growing up, but I watched a ton of Braves games."

Apathy, Apathy, Apathy ... ahh screw it...

You talk about hating Burke the day after he has the team's only extra base hit?
"Ground ball right side, they're not gonna be able to turn two OR ARE THEY, THROW, IS IN TIME!!! WHAT AN UNBELIEVABLE TURN BY BRUNTLETT AND EVERETT, AND THEY CUT DOWN MABRY TO END THE GAME, AND THE ASTROS LEAD THIS NATIONAL LEAGUE CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES THREE GAMES TO ONE!!!!!"

You gotta remember, back in the day, the majority of the country was sold MLB on WTBS and WGN only.  Thus, a nation full of pretender Cub and Brave bandwagoners.  Burke was a product of this twisted world.
