Phillies' Burrell unhappy about being removed

MIAMI - Pat Burrell was not happy with manager Charlie Manuel's decision to remove him late in yesterday's 11-inning loss to the Florida Marlins.

"I'm upset, absolutely," Burrell said. "I'm upset, and I have been for a long time. It's not personal. I don't want to ever come out of close games."

Manuel routinely replaces his leftfielder with a speedier defender when the Phillies have leads late in games.
