Torre is going to give Bernie every oppurtunity to earn back his CF rights and in a recent interview George said Bernie is the CF.

Once the Yanks sign Travis Lee (they know Giambi can't play first...bad defensively and you know he is going to get hurt), I say Lofton is the odd-man out with Lee at first, Giambi at DH and Bernie playing the majority of games at CF, with Lofton maybe starting 1-2 games a week.

Bernie will sit those games. Giambi's bat is more-needed than his and I really don't want Jason playing the field.

so you would rather have bernie on the bench that giambi in the field, that makes no sense, giambi plays 1 or 2 games in the field a week, not a big deal, and travis lee hits instead of bernie, so what you are saying is that without injuries travis lee will play close to all the games

I thought Tony Clark was Giambi's backup?

Yeah, Clark is Giambi's back up right now, but the team is still in heavy negotiation with Lee and I would think that they would rather have him than the chronically injured Clark.
And, to clear everything up, if there are 4 men to play 3 positions, I would like to see Bernie in CF, Giambi at DH and Lee at 1B. For 1 or 2 games a week, now, you are probably right that Giambi will play the field and Bernie will DH with Lofton at CF and Lee on the bench, but I really fear Giambi playing at first at all.

I may be wrong but i just dont see how Lofton will be a starter and Williams not. I believe Williams will get the CF job.

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.
