I wonder if Lance has some sour grapes over the Rangers ending the Yankees season? I heard the live phone interview with Berkman replayed on MLB Network. Lance's tone seemed catty and he even took the time to rip Vlad's inability to play defense.

Funny how Lance is complaining about Vlad not being able to play defense. In the meantime, the Cardinals will have arguably the worst defensive outfield in baseball.

I do agree with him, however, about the Rangers "itching to spend money". The Beltre signing, while it does make them a better team, seems like a knee-jerk reaction to losing out on Lee.

VMSNS:

Not really. Both Nolan Ryan and the new president of the team (sorry I don't remember his name) said numerous times this off season they were planning to raise the payroll "significantly". The new ownership group is loaded and they just signed a very, very lucrative TV deal.

These guys are going to become a major player in the free agent market for the forseeable future.

I thought that was ridiculous of Lance to mention Vlad's defense. I think I'd still take a hobbled Vlad in RF over a healthy Lance Berkman. At least Vlad still has good outfield instincts where Berkman has NEVER been good on defense.

Not to mention that Berkman looked washed up last year where Vlad actually had a solid season.
