Lance Berkman vetoed a trade to the White Sox

Jul 30, 2010, 8:30 PM EDT

According to Bob Nightengale of USA Today, Lance Berkman recently invoked his no-trade clause to prevent a trade to the White Sox.

Not that I reside in Berkman’s head or anything, but I wonder if the fact that the White Sox swept the Astros in the 2005 World Series played at least a small part in his decision. A stretch? Maybe. But I’m guessing the *Big Puma never forgets.

*Plus, I haven’t seen a single mention of “Big Puma” anywhere today, so I needed a good place to weave baseball’s best nickname into the conversation. Mission accomplished.

    Now, if Berkman ever gets an AB and hits a dinger, John Sterling can say “The Big Puma pounces”
