My brother called me during the game last night and wondered if the Yankees would consider keeping Bernie Williams next year; buying out his option, then signing him to a small-time, one-year deal. After talking about it for a few minutes, the idea of Bernie in the DH/PH, Rock Raines/Chili Davis role would be appealing. He’d be a nice replacement for Sierra, that’s for sure. Whatta ya say? I know it’s still early, but do you think that Bernie and/or the Yankees would be interested in such a scenerio?
It hasn’t warmed up yet. Let’s hope that Bernie has another three-week hot stretch left in him. I know that I am appreciating every thing he does this season–especially the positive contributions–because it could be the last we see of him.
