but the legend lives on...
Berkman gets $10 million for 2013, but has a $1 million buyout for 2014.
So, essentially, he's getting $11 million.
He needs 525 to 550 at-bats for his option to vest.
Puma's option vests at 550 plate appearances, not 550 at-bats.
That's a much easier goal.
Mo got bashed left and right for signing puma to a 1/8mil, and asking him to play RF during 2011. he had a MVP-7 season after looking like he was fading fast in 2010.
if he gets the leg healthy, his home park can be a big advantage for him.
This is exactly what I suspected would happen with Berkman.
Some players just cant let go, but 10mil is a good reason to stick around.
He's done caughts that Jim Thome syndrome.
The Puma doesn't need no stinkin' knees.
" He was healthy in 2011"
And I find that interesting.
You're not the only one.
"St. Louis columnist: 'I'm stunned' at size of Berkman's contract with Rangers "
They had a place to vote on the site, I was surprised that some thought he was worth it.
