Anyone know what's up with Berkman?

Postby Big Pimpin » Thu Sep 01, 2005 12:44 pm

May - .234, 1 HR, 6 RBI
June - .308, 5 HR, 20 RBI
July - .362, 6 HR, 20 RBI
August - .242, 1 HR, 9 RBI

I thought he had gotten back to really good form through most of June and July, and he'd be solid the rest of the way. I wasn't expecting another poor month like he put up in August. I don't know if this is injury related or if it's just a slump, but he's been killing me lately. Anyone have any insight?

I don't have any solid insight into the problem, except he was a guest on Jim Rome today and that could only mean one thing:
Jungle Karma

so he may get hot for a little bit based on that but other than that I really have no idea what his deal is.

Sadly, here in Peoria, IL we don't get Rome any more. They turned the station he was on, Fox Sports, to classic country. :~(

I know I was. Granted I didn't think he'd keep us how hot he was in July, but even his June numbers seemed reasonable. He's done a lot of nothing over the last month... :-t

He told Rome that his ACL is still bothering him quite a bit and he was playing everyday only because the Astros are close in the playoff race.

He'll be using the off season to get it right and I wouldn't hold out much hope he does anything of significant value fantasy wise in the next month.

Could be a nice buy low target next season.

I noticed that he was only something like 3-14 against Harang, but that all of his hits were HRs, so I started him today. Glad I did, and hopefully this is a sign of things to come. ;-D
