Sweet Lou Piniella to join the YES Network

The Yankees are bringing in a familiar name – former player, coach, manager, and nemisis – Lou Piniella, to join them as a special contributor at the YES Network this upcoming season, according to Bob Raissman of the NY Daily News.

Rumors that he would join them in the broadcast booth go back to December and the Yankees have been trying to bring him back into the fold ever since he retired from managing.

Lou was a fiery personality on the field and should be a funny personality on the camera as well in the Paul O’Neill mold. I look forward to seeing him this season.

    Welcome back Lou! This is where you belong. The YES Network couldn't have made a better baseball gamble. By signing Lou we won't have to listen to Michael Kay candy coat every Yankee negative. Seeya!!
