He's going to appeal, and his appeal apparently won't be heard until the middle of next week.

Possibly, it is also possible that he is heating up because he is finally playing with some emotion and this was the spark.

i just hope he doesn't pull a sexson when he returns (sexson was going nuts in the beginning of the seaosn, then seattle vs. cleveland got postponed a bunch of times due to retarded weather in cleveland, and he's been in a slump since resuming play).

was it? all i know is that under gamelog in april 2nd he hit a homer, then the next day in april 3rd he hit another homer. that was the last time his average was over .250.

i'm just saying berkman's put together back to back homer games for the first time since may 9th. i hope it's a trend, and not just what will turn out to be another blip on the radar.

This guy is still young enough to come back and stay hot. He's going to be a beast the next few years

How is no one talking about some of these ejections are getting ridiculous, including berkmans, at least the second ejection for sure. This no tolerance stuff is bull, if it is even that. The NBA is doing it and now MLB.
