Did you also hear that Lance Berkman is in the best shape of his life?
While best shape of my life stories are indeed mostly fibs, I think the Kung Fu Panda has a bounceback year. His BABIP and HR/FB ratio were down last year, so he should come up some. High teens, low twenties power with an average a little north of 300. The R/RBI opporrunities are tied to his position in the lineup. I think he lost the 3 spot permanently to Posey now, so he might have to hit out of the 5 or 6 spot. I think you can expect around 150 R/RBI.
