    Peter Bergeron is now a six-year minor league Free Agent. The Yankees should sign him to a contract to play in Columbus with an invite to the 2006 big league Spring Training camp.

    Bergeron has average range in CF and was once a prospect (albeit 5 years ago). He was rushed to the bigs by the Expos a few years back. Still, he’s presently under 30.

    Maybe there’s something there that can help the Yankees in some way next year? Hey, they invited Doug Glanville down to Tampa last Spring. A Bergeron invite is not bad compared to that.

    A minor league deal is no risk with the potential for some reward.

      Please, no more experiments. Let’s get a real CF.

      He’s not going to cost more than the spare change on George’s dresser, might as well give him a look-see.

      FWIW, I am not suggesting that PB would be the answer to CF. Far from it. He’s got as much a chance at being the answer as Ruben Rivera. Still, given the guys at Columbus now with CF skills, he could be a good spare part insurance guy.

      Couldn’t hurt to take a flyer on him, but you already have Bubba Crosby to do what Bergeron would do
