Slow news day, so I’ll update you on the Bernie Williams situation. A bunch of reporters followed him to a Connecticut concert to get a few quotes last night.
The New York Times says Williams will stay in shape and wait for that guaranteed offer from the Yankees. The story indicated that he’d turn down guaranteed offers from other teams. Scott Boras said this week that several other teams have expressed interest in Williams.
Williams does not believe he’ll play with the Yankees this year, but wants a more definitive answer. He’s not ready to retire. He had his uses as a fourth outfielder last year, hitting .281/.332/.436 in 420 ABs. Many teams would have a use for that.
