The Texas Rangers have made an offer to Lance Berkman, though Team President Nolan Ryan says the six-time All-Star won’t decide about his future until next week.

The American League just makes the most sense for Berkman. I will always be appreciative of the fact that I got to see him play for a couple of seasons in St. Louis, but between his age and his knees, being a DH in the American League is just the right fit. As I wrote this morning, he could stay in Houston and play DH, but I don’t think Berkman wants to come back to play for a certain losing team.
