Alyson Footer has an excellent recap of the last 72 hours. It's well worth a full read, but here are some interesting notes to pull:
*Berkman would have approved a trade to Texas and St. Louis, and "would have thought about" Tampa Bay and San Diego. He turned down the Angels and White Sox.
But he's leaving here and heading to a great team, to play in a packed ballpark every night, where every game matters. And the Yankees win. A lot. And once he gets a taste of winning again, I sincerely doubt he'll long to be back here when it's over.
