St. Louis Cardinals Lance Berkman Bashes Texas Rangers
Newly signed St. Louis Cardinals Lance Berkman went on the John & Lance show on 1560 AM in Houston to explain why he choose to sign with the Cardinals over other suitors including the Texas Rangers in which he has some critical words about.
“I felt like if they didn’t re-sign Cliff Lee that they were going to be an average team and I feel that’s probably what’s going to end up happening. It’s all about your pitching. I feel like last year was one of those special years where you kind of catch lightning in a bottle and they got hot and they had some guys that I felt like were pitching better than their talent level and consequently they had a great year.”
He also went on to talk about how he could have gotten more money from Texas because of their frivolous spending
“They were itching to spend some money. I probably could have gotten the best deal out of them, especially in light of what they gave Adrian Beltre, which I think is pretty much of a reach for him.”
