Will Bernie actually help the team?

I'm glad they resigned him so he can get a nice farewell tour this year, but if Bernie struggles I can see him retiring early this year from the team. He has so much pride that if he slides down into the low .200's, I really can't see him staying on the team as an active player. Bernie just might be able to become a dangerous number eight hitter with the pressure of not having to shag fly balls in center gone and that would be a fitting end to his great career. That is a big if, but I'm going to keep the positive vibes flowing to Williams. He deserves every chance he gets to still contribute and the Yanks did the classy thing by resigning him for 2006.
