Yankees Acquire Lance Berkman

Recommended Posts

5:09pm: The deal is done and Berkman has approved it, according to Joel Sherman of the New York Post.





I wonder who the Yankees gave up for him?


Either way adding Berkman as a DH makes their lineup even better then it already was....

Solid move by the Yanks, regardless of what was given up.


With Cervelli starting so much at C and Posada still having a solid year with the bat, I wonder if there's any thought of running Big Puma out in LF with Gardner swinging into CF. Granderson isn't tearing it up and it was said the Yanks were looking for an OFer previously.


Still waiting to see what my Stros got out of it though.

It's being said this is going to be basically a salary dump. All Yankees are going to give up is a mediocre prospect (probably 1 or 2 C+ specs) and take on all of the remaining cash on Berkman's $14 million contract (also being said that the Yankees won't pick up 2011 option).
