Lance Berkman expects to be back just after the All-Star break

Lance Berkman has been on the disabled list since late May after having surgery to fix a meniscus tear in his knee. Joe Strauss reports, however, that he’s not far from returning.


That’s good news. Berkman was hitting .333/.429/.571 in 13 games. Of course, Allen Craig and Matt Carpenter have been pretty awesome in his stead. Better news for the Cards would be if some starting pitchers came back.

    I will respectfully disagree with the previous post. I will even refrain from the “thumbs down” button.

    Tear ‘um up Lance. Hope he has a great second half. With regard to a previous thread, I don’t think the Astros will sign any over-the-hill sluggers for the DH next year, and certainly not Carlos Lee. But if they chose to, they couldn’t do better than Lance. He retains great popularity (deservedly) in Houston.

    But that is not in the Astros’ plans.
