I would agree with much of what you wrote except a few things. He is almost 36 and he is an old 35. He has been banged up over the past few years. Keep in mind that he is typically a slow starter. ;-)


And to add on, you have to use the law of averages and expect guys like him and Jeter and Sheffield to break out, and they have. Now in that lineup Bernie has more value than you think: He'll help you in runs, Rbi's nad avg, 3 cat's we could all use a boost in. Buy him low or pick him up if he's still out there. By the way my sleeper of the week was Hideki Matsui. That was a good call and someone else that deserves a second look.

HR Bernie Williams. Fellas, the guy has been heating up the last couple weeks. You'd have to be blind to deny this fact. Again, as a 4th OFer, I think he's a pretty good option. I'm not going to go crazy blowing this guy's horn. But anybody who dismisses him flat-out has to be a Yankees' hater.

I'm in an 8 teamer and I picked him up 2 weeks ago when he got on his hot streak. He's obviously not the Bernie of old, but his skills haven't just diminished. He still has something to offer for fantasy teams, as I am enjoying his hot streak in my UTL spot right now... ;-D

I wouldn't spend a #1 priority on him though.

3 for 4 today thus far with a HR. What was that about slow bat speed? Glad I have him in my lineup today; that's all I know! ;-D

Ok, now go back and analyze the last week. Players shouldn't be necessarily judged by a month, the DH Bernie plays the better he will hit, put Kenny Lofton out there I say, Bernie will bang the ball.
