Berkman?! What the hell for? Go with the youth movement you had going. And to pay him $10 million?
I don't see him being any better than Young. In fact I think he is worse. Slower and less versatile. But I suppose Berkman has some power. But my gosh the team doesn't have to revolve around power hitters. I just want people that can hit period.
And this will also seem to put off playing Olt or Profar. What's the point of having top prospects only to never use them? I believe both are ready for the big league but of course will need time.
I was okay with everything the Rangers had been doing this offseason. But this Berkman signing just doesn't make sense to me. And for that kind of cash, along with picking up Young's contract is just stupid.
