So long, Puma

Lance Berkman was one of the most caring, honest and reliable guys you could ever want to meet, in addition to being a heck of a baseball player. Sure, it looks like his skills are declining at age 34, but he can still swing the bat, draws walks and, as we saw a few days ago, knows how to turn on a good fastball now and then.

Simply put, Berkman, traded to the Yankees on Saturday, is the most enjoyable players I’ve covered in my seven years on the Astros beat and he’ll be missed. It’s definitely going to be strange to see him wearing pinstripes.

So long, Puma.

Berkman, we enjoyed all your years in Houston. You are in the same category as Biggio and Bagwell. Sorry to see you go. Good luck in New York, i think i hate the Yankees.
