Years ago, tearing up your knee would mean that your career might be over. At least the prime of it. Now, it gets you over $14M per season. :-°

The Astros signed outfielder Lance Berkman to a six-year, $85 million contract extension on Saturday. Berkman inked a one-year, $10.5 million deal in February to avoid arbitration, and the new contract includes that money. The extension runs through 2010 and includes a seventh-year option or buyout provision, according to Berkman, 29, led the Astros by hitting .316 with 30 homers and 104 runs in 2004, and he added in 106 RBI. He will miss the beginning of the 2005 season while recovering from knee surgery.

Berkman (knock wood) will be fine. If they let him go to free agency, given how weak next year's group is likely to be, they may have had to pay more. If anything, barring an insanity streak in Houstan ownership, this is a pretty good sign that Berkman is going to be fine and back in May.

I agree, rehab for players today is pratically nothing...look at TO and how he played so shortly after his injury
Go Braves!
