Piniella Was Teaching Owner a Lesson

All the pro-Yankee newspapers are celebrating the Junkees' offensive barrage, where they scored 20 runs. Nevermind that Randy Johnson stunk up the joint. Forget that Proctor, Stanton, and Sturtze were ineffective, right?

Wrong. Wow, the bats woke up, they say.

I say, a agree with Warner Wolf. His take was this: Lou wants out because the owner is stingy. So he left Nomo in to get rocked in the 5th, even though the guy was clearly losing it, giving up 6 consecutive hits. Then in the 8th, he left Travis Harper in to get bombed. Why? Because the owner was at the stadium, and Lou wanted to say, "If you don't give me pitchers, this is what you're going to get."

So Junkee fans, don't get too excited. Do you think the Yankees can come back from 10-2 against the White Sox in October? Against the Angels in the ALDS? Versus the Red Sox in the ALCS?
