The Port Arthur News' Bob West has this in his column:
Word out of the winter baseball meetings was that a handful of teams, including the Boston Red Sox, were asking about Astros first baseman Lance Berkman. Word out of Houston, however, is that hell will freeze over before Astros owner Drayton McLane agrees to deal his overweight fan favorite, despite the fact Berkman's coming off a subpar season that suggests he might be on the downside of his career.
If you followed the Winter Meetings fairly closely, you know the Red Sox are hot for Adrian Gonzalez, which isn't going so well. If you had the opportunity to trade Berkman to the Red Sox, would you do it, and who would you want in return?
