What’s that saying, oh yeah, all good things must come to an end. Possibly.
Right now, Lance Berkman is still waiting to hear from the team on their decision of possibly picking up his 2014 club option for next season. The 37 year old switch hitter will enter his 15th season in the league, spending a good chunk of his career with the Houston Astros.
Berkman has moved between three major league teams in the last four seasons. After moving to the New York Yankees in 2010 from the Houston Astros, he landed with the Cardinals in 2011 and played with them for two seasons, winning a World Series.
The six time all-star is clearly getting up there in age. This season through 256 at bats, Berkman only managed to hit six home runs, drive in 34 runs with a batting line of .242/.340/.359 this season with the Rangers.
He signed a one year $11 million deal with a 2014 option. With his production going down and him turning 38 during Spring Training, he could be looking for another team yet again.
You would have to think that maybe this was his last season if his option is to be denied by the Rangers.
