Where has Lance Berkman's power disappeared to? It's a simple question that unfortunately lacks a simple answer, but Berkman's power has been so AWOL since the All-Star break. He has failed to homer in his 68 at-bats since then, and has not gone yard since July 9. Last year, Berkman had 22 homers in the first half, and just seven in the second.
