Saying Good-Bye to Berkman and Young

Two players exited the game this off-season who leave behind them a legacy of class and excellence. Lance Berkman and Michael Young were stars during their years on the field, but they will never be immortalized in Cooperstown.  And rightfully so. Berkman started his career in a Houston Astros uniform back in 1999. He quickly became the third member of the "Killer B'...

Is Lance Berkman a cheaper version of Josh Hamilton?

After watching Josh Hamilton sign with their division rival, the Rangers made a move this weekend to replace his bat in their line-up, signing Lance Berkman to take over as their DH for 2013.

Six things you might not know about Lance Berkman
