Myth vs. reality … one more addition

Myth: Bernie Williams would help this team.

Reality: I’m begging people to stop with this. Bernie had a .332 OBP last season and is 38 years old. He can’t run, field or pinch hit (7 of 33 from 2004-06). And if you thing his presence would somehow lead to magic, you should know that he was regularly the last one to arrive at the park and the first one to leave. Bernie was given a chance to try and make the team and he turned it down. Case closed.

Meanwhile, if you’re interested, I’ll be on ESPN’s “Outside The Lines” at 3:30 EDT today.
