Jeez, Berkman, just shut up!

Bernardo Fallas writes the impending eulogy for Roy's career in Houston, canonizing Oswalt's potential last start against the Pirates yesterday afternoon.

Was Roy thinking about getting traded?
"That's the business part of it. The best part about it is when you step across the white lines you don't have to worry about it; you just go out there and play the game."

And then Berkman comes along and pisses in everyone's purple drank:
"Nothing's happened yet, and it may not happen. I don't know that we need to start singing his swan song just yet with the Astros."

Wah wah waaah.

We do see an interesting quote in USA Today:
"They pay you to pitch and that's what I'm going to do until it's time to go somewhere else."
