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."

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. . . .

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.

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.
