Berkman has been hurting hitting from the right side, and is actually a pretty pathetic hitter from the right side. So, I think he was batting that low sicne a lefty was pitching.
My hair's turnin' white, my neck's always been red, my collar's still blue
We've always been here tryin' to sing the truth to you
Guess you could say we've always been red white and blue
