Bernie Miklasz tells you how to feel about Berkman

For some reason, we can tell you how you should feel, and we see nothing wrong with it. But when St. Louis media tells us how to feel, we get all in a huff:

I can't comprehend why any Astro fan would show hostility toward the Puma over the next three days at Minute Maid. Unlike, say the Cardinals vs. Cubs or Cardinals vs. Reds, the Cardinals and Astros are not hateful rivals. They're not involved in a heated race for first place. It's not as if Berkman made comments critical of Astros fans or the organization. Berkman got older, the Astros moved in a new direction, and Berkman moved to St. Louis. There's no bad guy here.
