I'd take Berkman over Upton in a redraft. I think he just had a slow first half of '07...he was very good after the break. I like him this year. I think he can hit 40+ HR's again with an OPS around .950.
He's an annual staple. I landed Berkman in the fourth round of a ten team CBS 5X5 draft and I considered it the steal of that draft. Consistent power, a strong batting average, an improving lineup, plus I get to enjoy one last year of OF eligibility.
