Torre calls time on Bernie in CF

We have been discussing the fortunes of Bernie Williams in recent days and so have the Yankee hierarchy. Matsui is now the everyday CF whilst Tony Womack will become the teams everyday LF. At 2B we will see Robinson Cano come up and start as Derek Jeter's double-play partner as the Yankees really shake things up.

Bernie Williams though is the sad story as his poor elbow means his career as a big league fielder is all but over. He'll share DH duties will Jason Giambi and Ruben Sierra but in reality we have seen the best of Bernie Williams and sadly it is very much in our rear view mirror. He is a $12,357,143m bench player, only on the Yankees.

Also Sean Henn will come up and take Randy Johnson's start on Wednesday, with Steve Karsay being optioned and available to anyone who wants him as he passes through waivers.

These moves are not the typical Yankee moves we are used to, but personally I am excited by them. Let's see if Cano is ready for the bigs, we can't exactly do a lot worse!
