BREAKING NEWS: Joe Buck Pays Lance Berkman to Injure A-Rod (Satire)

In a strange turn of events, an unknown source reports that Joe Buck paid off Lance Berkman.  The bounty was placed to hit a line drive off Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez while the superstar wasn't paying attention.

Buck, known by many as a Yankee hater, allegedly told the struggling Berkman he would give him $75,000 if he hit a screaming line drive that hit A-Rod, while Buck would distract A-Rod by talking to him. Rodriguez is now considered day-to-day. 

Berkman, as of August 6th, is 2-for-19 in five games. 

It is unclear why Berkman would agree to go through with this idea, since he is making over $10 million this year, and has an option for over $14 million next season. 

When approached by reporters, Buck said, "I didn't do anything wrong. But I still hate the Yankees."
