From the Snohomish County Herald:
There are some players the Mariners may pursue with hopes they can regenerate their past power. Those include Denny Hocking, a switch-hitter who hit 22 homers and drove in 68 runs with the Twins two years ago but had just 104 at-bats the past two years with the Rockies and Royals; Terrence Long, who declined a minor-league assignment after hitting six homers and 53 RBI with the Royals; and Bernie Williams, a switch-hitter who hit 11 of his 12 home runs from the left side last season with the Yankees.
To date, this is the only whisper that I can find where a team is maybe expressing an interest in Bernie Williams (outside of the Yankees) for 2006. I think Bernie and his agent should take the hint.
