frick that guy. gets fat in houston and milks us for all were worth. then shows up in st louis so thin hes unrecognizable. let that soft, fat, injury prone douche nozzle steal money from another club
yea I mean all he did with Houston was -
- 5 All Star appearances
- averaged 517 at bats since his rookie year (not counting his final season when he was traded midway thru the year)
- put up career highs in: at bats, runs, hits, doubles, triples, home runs, RBI's, stolen bases, base on balls, batting average, slugging percentage, OPS
- and was basically the only Astro who hit the damn ball during the World Series. not to mention the numerous memorable home runs and grand slams in the playoffs where he bailed the Astros out (his grand slam in the NLDS against the Braves come to mind first)
Berkman was never my personal favorite, but he was a stud in Houston and is one of the greatest Astros of all time.
