That's what Tony LaRussa is thinking as he just appeared on Sirius XM radio at the Winter Meetings, as Jim Bowden relays.
If so, that's a disaster waiting to happen. Berkman, who is trying to reclaim his offensive prowess after a lost 2010, hasn't played the outfield since 2007 when he appeared in 31 games. The switch-hitter has 717 career games at first base, 533 in left and 264 in right field (also 166 in center, but that was back in 2001-02 for the bulk of these games). Utilizing Berkman in right field means the Cardinals are punting on defense in right field as there's near-zero chance he can provide any defense.
