The New York Post is licking its chops about the Astros

The New York Post's Brian Costello looks at the upcoming series with the Astros as something of a tryout for Berkman to join the Majors.

The Yankees also need to see if Mark Teixeira snaps out of his slump and if Alex Rodriguez goes on a power binge. The duo currently has 16 home runs combined. If Cashman decides to bolster the lineup, he should have options...

...Lance Berkman is in a similar situation (as Paul Konerko). The Astros are going nowhere and need to dump the 34-year-old, who has underperformed this year and has a $15 million option for 2011.
