Newsday: Bullpen needs could make Bernie odd man out
by SG

While Bernie Williams is eager for another season in pinstripes, a cloud of uncertainty hovers over his future.

General manager Brian Cashman and manager Joe Torre both have spoken with Williams recently, but they have given him little indication whether they plan to have a spot for him on their 2007 roster, according to a person familiar with the situation.

When Torre spoke with Williams, the person said Torre echoed what he told reporters three weeks ago today: that Williams' future could be determined by whether the Yankees decide to go with an additional pitcher in the bullpen.

Bernie's been one of my favorite players, and I can't fault him for wanting to keep playing. If I was a player nearing the end of the line, they'd have to shoot me to get me off the field. All that being said, Bernie's no longer really got enough value to warrant a roster spot. It's going to be up to the Yankees to make that decision for him.
