Lance Berkman isn't what he was a few years ago -- his body has slowed down and it's affected every aspect of his game. However, if you don't think of him as the MVP candidate he was in the middle of the past decade and think of him instead as a (very wealthy) tactical weapon for the Yankees -- a platoon bat who can hit some and get on base against right-handed pitchers but not against southpaws -- he makes some sense.
