[Lou] Piniella plans to give Fukudome a game off in Pittsburgh this weekend, moving Mark DeRosa to right and giving Ronny Cedeno a start at second. As the weather heats up, look for Piniella to use his bench more often, even if it means sitting some of his regulars for a game or two.
“I remember one manager told me I looked tired, and I agreed with him,” Piniella said. “Seventeen days later, I got back in the lineup.”
Oscar Gamble was the one who took Piniella’s place with the Yankees, and Dick Howser was the manager.
“No one can play 162 games anymore,” Piniella said. “And if they do, you’re not going to get a very productive 162. So take a little breather, get a little rest, give someone on the bench a chance to play and, I promise, I won’t sit anybody 17 days.”
