In which we discover that Lance Berkman is not a monster

If you're reading this, there's a pretty good chance you've already read my friend Craig Calcaterra's account of his long phone conversation with Lance Berkman. If so, I'll spare you the background; if not, here's where you can get all caught up. But it's a long post for Craig, so I worry that more than a few readers didn't quite make it all the way to the end. Which is the important...

Lance Berkman Attacks Houston’s Equal Rights Ordinance

Oh, Lance Berkman…please leave your intolerance to guys like Torii Hunter. On November 3, Houston residents will be voting on the city’s recently proposed Equal Rights Ordinance which will allow, among other things, transgendered people to use public bathrooms consistent with their gender identity.

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's" trio...

Upon retirement, how should Lance Berkman's career be viewed?

After 15 seasons in the major leagues, Lance Berkman announced on Wednesday that he's decided to retire.  Knee, hip and back injuries have just become too much to overcome for the slugger, who will turn 38 years old next month.
