All-Star game set; Bernie pondered

In a not-so-shocking announcement, MLB and the City of New York announced today that the 2008 All-Star Game would be at Yankee Stadium.

Meanwhile, the estimable Jon Heyman reports that the Yankees have offered Bernie Williams a non-contract invite to spring training. There has been talk of this for several weeks and Brian Cashman has talked around it every time.

Williams, I’m sure, is hoping for a one-year deal but the Yankees won’t do that. A non-roster invite certainly puts Bernie in the embarrassing position of possibly being released out of camp.

There’s no right answer to this, only Bernie knows. If he wants to camp and fight for a job that may not exist, that’s his call. But the Yankees might be wise to make the break now. Otherwise camp becomes more about the past than the future.

I’m off to the city to see what Roger Clemens has to say. Be back later with a report.
