I think it's a good gamble. Berkman is better than he was last year and the Cards could always use more pop in their lineup. I'm guessing he won't be around after this 1 year contract though, his defense will be BAD.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.......ImageImageImage

This is the worst thing to happen this off-season so far. Couldn't be to us or some random team, had to be to the most ass-hatted team there is. ImageImageImage

The Cardinals like L. Berkman so much they are going to put a statue of him in the OF this year.

They are playing with fire having him in the OF everyday being in the Nl without the option to DH and sometimes sitting who you have @ 1B isnt an option.

The good part is the one year. If he somehow can stay fine out there, what a deal for them.
