It's been reported that his contract will be bought out at the end of the season. That means the rumors of him replacing Joe Torre will begin very soon, especially if the Yankees don't win the World Series.
If I were a Yankee fan, I'd probably have a meeting tomorrow with a parole officer. Wait, what I meant to say is if I were a Yankee fan, I would not want Torre replaced with Piniella. If Piniella were managing the Yanks this year, there is no way they'd be in contention. Torre's calm patience and leadership has helped the Yankees' pitching staff survive and helped Giambi become a contributor. The Yankees would have quit with Piniella at the helm.
