Red Sox Kicked The Tires On Lance Berkman

Missed On 3 Years, $39 Million?'s Rob Bradford reports that the Red Sox started negotiations with free-agent first baseman/DH Lance Berkman—before the 36-year old agreed to terms with the Rangers. Berkman reportedly would have been a back-up plan in the event that Mike 'What Is Hip?' Napoli didn't work out at first base. Berkman always wanted to sign with a Texas team, so the chances of the Red Sox nabbing him were never good—thank goodness.
