Yankees acquire Lance Berkman, Austin Kearns
Berkman, who had a no-trade clause, decided an opportunity to win a World Series, was worth leaving the only organization he has known. Berkman has had a disappointing offensive season, hitting just .245 with 13 HR's and 49 RBI's. He is expected to fill the DH role, vacated by the injured Nick Johnson.
Austin Kearns has had a decent 2010 in Cleveland, hitting .268 with 8 HR's and 42 RBI's. He should be a solid backup for the Yankees.
Kevin Says: Decent move for the Yanks, it at least gives them a solid veteran to man the DH position. He should make their lineup a little bit deeper. Kearns will give them a solid bat of off the bench.
