TAMPA, Fla. - Political conventions are magnets for folks with all sorts of causes, quite unrelated to presidential politics. But one event at the Republican National Convention brought together, among others, Mike Huckabee - the former Arkansas governor, Fox News host and bass guitarist - and Bernie Williams, former New York Yankees center fielder and Latin-Grammy-nominated classical guitarist. They met on Monday afternoon, before the action heated up at the Tampa Bay Times Arena, for an unusual panel discussion a few blocks away at the Tampa Theater, a baroque 1926s movie palace.

Think your email, and your money, are safe? Think again. Earlier this year, the FBI warned that "cyber-criminals are compromising the email accounts of U.S. individuals and businesses" and using the accounts to arrange fraudulent cash transfers. Lake Arrowhead resident Bernie Williams never saw that warning. Nor did he think anything like this could happen to him. Now he's $8,629 poorer. "It's such a sophisticated scam," Williams, 70, said with grudging admiration. "If it wasn't a crime, I'd give the guy an Oscar.

One year late, from back in the pack, the Yankees give us a real September. Maybe it is too late to save them. But it does not change that they have come back and played real ball, when no one thought they could. It has to make you cheer, whether you like the new wild-card system or not. There are 16 games left, which makes it the shortest possible season. The Yankees and their fans will take it.

When he played with the Angels, designated hitter Chili Davis came out of spring training every season with his "pick to click," a prediction of who he thought was going to have a big year. Davis returned to his fortune-telling mode this weekend, when he said of Yankee center fielder Bernie Williams: "I have a feeling Bernie is going to be the man in the next round. He's getting a little more aggressive. I have a feeling he's going to break out, and when he does, look out."

Ichiro Suzuki was cheered by fans at Safeco Field when he made his first appearance during the Seattle Mariners' game against the New York Yankees on Monday night. Nothing unusual about that -- it's been happening for more than a decade. But this time he trotted toward the outfield from the visitors' dugout wearing Yankees pinstripes. There was something very unusual about that. After spending more than 11 seasons -- his entire major league career -- with the Mariners, the team pulled a surprise trade Monday with that night's opponent just 3 1/2 hours before the game.

New York Yankee center fielder Bernie Williams, who has been on the disabled list since June 11 with a sprained right knee, will begin a rehabilitation assignment today with the Tampa Yankees of the Florida State League. . . . The Minnesota Twins sent Scott Stahoviak to triple-A Salt Lake City. Stahoviak batted .105 (two for 19) with one home run and one RBI in nine games after being called up June 22. The Twins will make a roster move after the All-Star break to replace Stahoviak

Everybody wants Bernie Williams to be pure. It is the agent, Scott Boras, who has to come up a money grubber. The fans want it to be this way, so does George Steinbrenner. But Boras is not the one who shoots for the moon here, no matter how much he talks. It is Bernie Williams. Sometimes in sports, the agent still works for the player, not the other way around. Boras is just doing what he is told, no matter how upsetting that is to everybody who wants Williams to be a sweeetheart in all matters.

Bernie Williams points out he is just another guy in a uniform, another navy streak in George Steinbrenner's pinstriped universe, and that he could be wrong. But he is as familiar as any of them in the last decade of the Yankees, when championships came fast and then were lost in a run of front-office miscalculations and field-level malfunctions. Five autumns have passed since they last won a World Series.

Williams raised his right arm in triumph as he rounded first base, and Derek Jeter and Alex Rodriguez were the first players to greet him at home.

Center fielder Bernie Williams will sit out the New York Yankees' opening two-game series in Tokyo against Tampa Bay that starts March 30. Williams is working his way into shape after an appendectomy on Feb. 26. "By the time we're ready to leave in a couple weeks, he may be into full-time action but, obviously, at that point in time won't have enough at-bats," Yankee Manager Joe Torre said. Williams will remain in Florida to play in minor league games.

Bernie Williams had his appendix removed Thursday, and New York Yankee Manager Joe Torre said the center fielder probably would miss opening day. "I'm very sorry for Bernie because he came in in such great shape and worked so hard," Yankee owner George Steinbrenner said. "He's a very integral part of this team. I know Bernie. He'll fight through it and be back quicker than everybody thinks."

Alfonso Soriano got his mark, Bernie Williams just missed. Soriano homered to become the only second baseman to post a 30-30 season and Williams' streak ended at 11 consecutive hits--one short of the record--as the New York Yankees defeated the Seattle Mariners, 8-3, Saturday. "I think it was a great run," Williams said. "I had a lot of fun with it. And obviously you don't expect those things to last. It just wasn't meant to be."

The second start to Woody Williams' season has been nearly perfect. Williams pitched six scoreless innings, and Jim Edmonds and Albert Pujols each homered to help the St. Louis Cardinals defeat the Cincinnati Reds, 7-3, Monday night and take three of four from the National League Central Division leaders at St. Louis. "My mechanics were off, but shoot, are you kidding me?" Williams said. "I'll take that every time. I'm not a beggar."
