Regardless of whether it's true or not...Berkman needs to shut his ****ing mouth and just play the game. Seems like this guy is ALWAYS spouting off to the media or shoving his opinion down our throats just to seem like a tough guy. Whenever I read quotes from him, he comes off as a sanctimonious, arrogant blowhard.

Berkman is from Houston and still has a soft spot for the Astros despite now being on the Cards.

And he's just saying what millions of Astros fans believe is true. He may be a bit of a blowhard, but this issue shouldn't be swept under the rug.

Especially since the so-called commissioner has been pushing an agenda solely to the benefit of the TV money-centric clubs, and not looking out for all the franchises.
