    MERGED: The Official 2007 New York Yankees Thread!

    Its Feb 1st, time to shift to baseball.

    Could be an interesting month. We could see Bernie retire and then see Roger announce his return at some point this season.

    Looks like Bernie was only offered a minor league contract. I dont think he will take it. I think he will explore his options then retire or sign somewhere else

    Bernie Williams is leaning toward accepting the Yankees' offer of a minor-league contract, two people familiar with the situation told Newsday yesterday. The 38-year-old, ultra-popular outfielder is aware that he'll be a long shot to make the 2007 Yankees, the sources said. But after spending all 16 of his big-league seasons as a Yankee, he has no desire to play for another team, and Williams figures that if he doesn't make the cut, he'll retire in Yankees pinstripes. Should Williams move forward and agree to the non-guaranteed deal, he would give Yankees fans a likely final chance to thank him, albeit in exhibition games, for his outstanding career. But he also would make himself one of the focal points of the media, from the first workout until the close of camp. Williams has made it clear in recent interviews that he's not ready to retire. Yet both his strong family ties - he makes his full-time home in Westchester - and his appreciation of his place in Yankees history have made him reluctant to join another team.

    Looks like Bernie is going to take the Yankees minor league offer, show up for spring training and put the pressure on the Yanks to cut him!!!!

    I don't know why the Yankees just don't keep him on the bench with Melky, Phillips, and Cairo. Cairo and Phillips can play just about any infield position so it's not as if they need another infielder. Bernie should just suck it up, be the 5th outfielder, have 100 at bats, and make this his victory lap. Everyone knows it will never work out for him if he goes to another team. See Patrick Ewing!

    The Yanks should have never signed Manlkadjslkvitch to play 1B. That roster spot could have been given to Bernie, Giambi could have played more games at 1B and let Bernie DH more and all of this could have been avoided.
