Berkman comments on steroids and pitching

"You knew there was going to be a day of reckoning," Berkman said Wednesday while McTaggart and I chatted with him.

At first it seemed as though Berkman was joking, as usual. But he was somewhat serious, even pointing out that more pitchers than hitters have been suspended for using steroids.

"Everybody wants to talk about the hitters being juiced," he said. "Nobody even really thinks about the pitchers. Before they were throwing 95-mph, but now they're throwing 90. It's going to be a whole different feel."

AH but they don't use flax seed oil or dress in drag. So how would Prior look in a dress?

Makes you wonder if guys like Oliver Perez were on steroids, he sucks right now and his velocity is way down.

With Perez it's his location. He's been walking guys left and right for more than a year now.

Dickey's velocity was very low in his first / only start against Detroit. Must be steroids.

It is about recovery. The pitchers don't have the velocity or control the next time around.

I think it's telling that it came from Berkman.

He doesn't come out and say a whole lot, and for him to make these comments, and talk about the velocity, you know what, there could be a lot of truth to this.

It's not like this former Rice Owl and local hero has an axe to grind against MLB either.

A new era of offense might be just beginning in baseball, boys.
