It's very dramatic. McTaggart has an article on Berkman's DL stint, in which he vows to never fear, never turn away, never look back:
"Obviously it stinks to have to start the year on the DL, but I'll get off quick and never look back. I hate missing any games at all, but as long as it doesn't turn into an ordeal. Really just being eligible to come off [April 10] is good news."
