    Lance Berkman

    Does Lance Berkman look unnaturally big?

    There's a picture of him on the front page of ESPN.com and his forearms are monstrous with veins popping out everywhere.

    I generally think its unfair to randomly accuse guys of steroid usage, but this guy went from washed up with no bat speed to having a quicker bat than ever before at age 35.

    Its suspicious as hell....

    He's getting advice from his batting coach on which cheek to use

    Dudes hitting .392 with 10 Homers....

    Would have rather had him in left at 8 Million then signing a backup SS named Edgar Renteria for 2 Million...

    Trust me as the summer heats up and the wear and tear from playing the OF takes it effect his numbers will drop. Poor use of 8 million in my opinion

    He is only getting older, he is NOT a physical speciem and playing even RF will take a wear and tear on his body. He's not a 20 something kid anymore. Hell Rolen started off great last year for us and looked what happen, sorry but he will not maintain...(unless he is getting help )

    Berkman was FAT the last few years
    He is a terrible RF and I can not imagine he is a roid guy
    Would be like Casey or Griffey being a juicer
    I would assume he actually got in shape this winter because he sucked last season
    Would love that bat, but the glove sucks

    I'm just glad I got Adrian Gonzalez out of himin fantasy baseball, lol. Hopefully he flops, but he's been a great signing so far.

    I looked at the pic, and I think your eyes are playing tricks on you. He's definately slimmed down. By losing bodyfat, your muscles and vascularity show more. Sorry, but throwing around roid accusations on a lark is pretty irresponsible.
    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.

    Well, so far, everything is going right for the Cardinals (except for losing Wainwright) and everything is going wrong for the Reds.

    Hopefully, the law of averages turns things around.

    Re: Lance Berkman

    They did a story on him last night on MLB. He didn't get much interest in the offseason, so he has a "chip" on his shoulder. Supposedly worked out like crazy, lost weight and is on a mission. Also doesn't hurt he played for the Yankees at the end of the year to remember what it's like to play for a winner.

    As long as he's healthy, the Cards have a heck of a big 3. He's done for the Cards what Rolen did for us.
