We're about to institute a moratorium on the Lance stories, just because he is now dead to us. But this article is pretty good. And your money quote from Berkman, read the first sixteen words, and then stop. It's better that way.
"For most of my career, I couldn't stand the Cardinals. I basically hated the organization's guts -- in a good way. In a fun way. It's more just a healthy respect, I should say. But that was part of what drove me here, too. I think so much of this organization and so much of the people, from [manager Tony La Russa] to his coaching staff to the players that have been around and I've competed against for so many years. I couldn't think of a better place to be."
