They should keep him one more year. He hit well last year!
They shouldn't play him over Cabrera though -- not playing Melky in the playoffs hurt the team. They became a lineup that was waiting for the homerun again.
Melky should be #1 reserve outfielder, and Bernie should be the backup DH. No doubt they'll have injuries as the year progresses. Giambi is 35. Most hitters are done at 34, and for sure Giambi will experience injuries this year.
Why can't Bernie play some first base? Back 30 years ago it was typical for an aging outfielder to learn first late in his career.
It's not like the Yanks are spending a lot for Bernie. They overspend everywhere else..
Bring back Bernie!!!!
