Lance Berkman: His return to Houston was met with this response from the team’s radio broadcaster, Milo Hamilton. “Why did you think it wasn’t necessary to get in shape your last couple of years as an Astro? And now to a team you didn’t even know, a manager you didn’t play for, you felt it was your responsibility to get in great shape?” Berkman – third in the NL in hitting at .385, with 6 HRs and 17 RBI – called the claims falsehoods and ludicrous, but then said he was never “rah-rah” about the gym. (Shocker!) He also said that “while Hamilton’s facts were warped, Hamilton’s premise may have been valid.” [Chronicle]
