What happened with the trade of Berkman? I remember Yankee fans calling it one hell of a move. Plenty of Yankee fans really believed that he'd take them "over the top".
Like I was saying before the trade, it was obvious that Berkman was a player on a serious decline, his numbers were the lowest since his rookie season, AL pitching is just way too tough as of right now, he's new to the league, has never played the role of a DH and Adam Dunn was the player every team really wanted out of the DH position.
Yankee fans didn't wanna hear it, but it was obvious that Berkman was on the verge of becoming Pat Burrell pt.2 once coming over to the American League. As we all know, New York isn't Houston; Not all players can handle the pressure of playing in New York. It's obvious that Berkman cant.
As far as this thread goes... Damon would be a solid addition, but I thought the trade deadline was over? It would be tough for the Yankees to pull of a trade as of right now.
