    Lou Piniella could return to his Yankees roots.

    According to the Associated Press, Piniella, who attended a Yankees fantasy camp on Thursday, has been invited to participate in the 2011 Old-Timers’ Day at Yankee Stadium.

    Piniella, a former Yankees manager and player, spent 30 minutes with Hank Steinbrenner, and the club’s co-chairman said that he’s sure Piniella will take part in the festivities, according to the report. Steinbrenner also said that he hopes Piniella will consider rejoining the organization in an advisory role and that the former Yankee will “always be a consultant for me.”

    Just imagine how much fun the media would have if Hank & Lou were running the Yankees show instead of Hal & Cashman…

      The Yankees are in far better hands with Hal and Cashman than with volatile narcissists like Hank and Piniella.

      If Lou wants to come back to the Yankees in a ceremonial function, that’s wonderful. If he wants to participate in Spring Training and be an instructor, I’m all for it. But Lou should be kept far away from the seat of power at this point. The past several years have been a study in attention-seeking behavior.

      I wish him well but prefer he stays away from baseball for a spell. He needs a break.

      Especially the booth and TV. He was horrible.
