Token Afternoon Berkman Update

Today's TABU comes courtesy of MyFoxHouston, where Ed Wade said:

"All indications are he'll be able to go (Tuesday). Nate Lucero (Astros head trainer) talked to Lance this morning and Lance said he had some minor swelling, but didn't think it was of consequence and should be ready to go...

..."He brings a huge element as a hitter, but beyond what he brings individually, it's what Lance brings collectively to the entire lineup. He takes a lot of pressure off of the guys around him, whether he's hitting or not.

"It changes how the opponents approach the rest of the lineup."
