Bernie Williams a manager?

Sounds kind of good, doesn't it?

Well, in case you missed it, Bernie Williams managed a baseball game over the weekend. Sure, it was just the Futures Game, but he accepted an offer and called the shots for one day. The whole story is nice, written by Yahoo!'s Tim Brown. But my biggest takeaway was this nugget left at the bottom:
"I think it is something I could maybe possibly in the future possibly [see] doing. It’s kind of intriguing at this point for me," Williams said.
No joke.

Williams has a life outside of baseball, and it's not something to take lightly. He has a passion for music, and he has released a couple of albums to prove it. That's great, and I couldn't be happier for him. He is one of the beloved Yankees of their most recent era of greatness. His number should soon be retired on Monument Park. No question.

Plus, he's a great guy. He gave me an interview a little more than a year ago, and I just felt at ease talking to him. That sounds like a good quality for a manager to have.

He said he was intrigued about managing following a 17-5 loss, so maybe we should really start to consider him managing as a possibility.
“After this game,” Bernie said, “I might have to reconsider.”
Maybe not.

Do you think Bernie Williams will be a manager one day?
