The irony was Berkman was nosediving when he dealt Braun to me for Berkman. :-b

Seems like Berkman's been hitting more groundballs just like last season's power drought. The irony here too was Berkman's GB rate held fairly steady during his torrid surge. I do smell a buy low opportunity out of him though.

To every action there is always opposed an equal reaction.

He looked in a mirror and realized he's an overweight white guy and not Albert Pujols?

It does look a little rough. Hopefully the "Young" was Dmitri... :-b

I figured it was Michael Young to swap SS, which confused me even more. Didn't occur to me that it'd be Dmitry, since I didn't know he belonged in anywhere besides the waivers. :-b

Yeah, my guess is it was Michael. I was just trying to pick a Young bad enough to justify the trade. I don't even know if Dmitri would make it fair, though...
