Berkman @ 1B

This is not a temporary problem for Bagwell - but one that has gotten worse over the years and likely will continue to do so. They were speculating on the broadcast yesterday that he may need shoulder replacement after his playing days are over just to have a semi-normal life.

That said, I am curious as to why Berkman, and not Lamb, was at 1B this weekend. They must feel it is easier on his knee. But Lamb looked lost in the OF and I thought he had played 1B last year.

So, as Bagwell is still allegedly a week away from his next cortisone shot, and as Berkman is just back, he may very well get 3 appearances there if Bagwell just can't go. Personally, I think Bagwell toughs it out for most of the week, gets his shot and this issue doesn't come up again until next month - at which time Berkman would stay at OF. So, to answer the original question, my guess is "no" - not because of Bagwell, but because I think Lamb/Vizcaino will get the majority of starts/PT at 1B if Bagwell can't go once Berkman feels "normal" in the OF again.

Lets not forget that Willy Taveras is doing fine in the CF position and has earned the leadoff spot due to said performance. I don't see much change.

Lamb has looked horrible in OF. He cant come in on balls, he cant go out on balls. He cant really do anything there in LF. So my guess is that if Bagwell can play he will be in there so Berkman can play OF.

a couple of years back i thought there was an article somewhere i think that said that bagwell will reitre at the end of the 2006. Which would be about right since thats whe hes contract runs out i beleive.
Anyways maybe this an audtion for berkman for when bagwell retires that he will take over 1st since hes slow in the outfield. :-?
Wemight also see burke at 2nd on some days and biggio in the outfield on days when bags cant play.
