Lance Berkman is not surprised by how awesome Lance Berkman was

An article from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch's Joe Strauss finds Lance Berkman reflecting on his ridiculous season.

"I don’t question my durability but I know other people did. Beyond the statistics, that’s the most satisfying thing, proving that I can get on the field every day. You get to the end of September and everybody is tired. Everybody is beat up. But that’s more of a normal year."

He then lit a match and set fire to a cotton doll with a picture of Ed Wade resting delicately on its face.

Am I the only one who remembers how Berkman would talk about himself and his career while slumping during the 2009 and 2010 seasons?

I recall him making comments about how he might not pick up his own Astros option and just retire. Or how he might have to accept the fact that he couldn't do amazing things anymore. Heck he even started talking about moving on and coaching UT baseball.

I love the guy, but I still remember the days when HE doubted himself and his abilities.
