Torre Out, Piniella In?

At least that's what the rumors are saying...Obviously Joe Torre isn't all to blame, but when you have the highest payroll and one of the best lineups of all time I guess you can't have too many excuses. Looks like Torre is going to get the axe:

According to the New York Daily News, however, the popular Yankees manager will be fired unless he decides to resign first to save face. Sources told the newspaper that former Yankees player and manager Lou Piniella will be owner George Steinbrenner's choice to replace Torre.

Has to be very frustrating for Yankees fans. Changes do need to be made, seeing that this formula hasn't worked in the last 6 years.
