Earlier this week Lance Berkman said that it was all about the money. So the Cardinals came through with the money: they’ve agreed to a one-year deal. The terms have not been disclosed, but some people are tweeting around that it’s a $12 million deal. We’ll update if and when that number is confirmed.
Which is probably right for a guy who has hit .300/.412/.555 with 31 home runs, 91 RBI and a .967 OPS. You don’t go $12 million in average annual value for him over any long period of time, but for one year? Sure, why not.
Next up: The Cardinals focus on Albert Pujols. Given that they’re on a winning streak in every way imaginable right now, is there any doubt that gets done before Thanksgiving?
