The annual B.A.T. Dinner was last night in Manhattan. Jorge Posada was there and said he has been speaking to Bernie Williams over the winter. Bernie doesn’t want to retire and still wants to play with the Yankees.
It remains to be seen how that can work out.
“If he doesn’t come back as a Yankee, it would be tough to see him in another uniform,” Posada said. “I don’t think he would even consider that. . . . Bernie wants to be a Yankee forever.”
The Yankees seem to be hoping that Bernie will take the burden off them and retire. But you can’t blame Bernie for wanting to play if he thinks he can still play.
Meanwhile, Jim Leyritz ripped Randy Johnson.
