    There is a link and article, it was posted here.


    Piniella said Thursday he had not yet spoken to Colletti, and Piniella expressed minimal interest in becoming the next Dodger manager.

    "It would be a longshot," he said.

    Piniella is the rare baseball manager who, rather than have unemployment thrust upon him, has chosen it.

    He has managed four teams since 1986, when he won 90 games with the New York Yankees, and has sat out one season, between the Yankees' fifth-place finish in 1988 and the Cincinnati Reds' World Series championship in 1990.

    At 62, having buried his father, Louis Sr., in February, and having directed the buyout of his contract with the Tampa Bay Devil Rays last month, Piniella is home in Tampa, unaffiliated with a major league organization, and uncertain what the next baseball season will hold.

    Though Piniella fits Colletti's vision of a proven winner, Piniella is reasonably sure he will not be in Los Angeles come April.

    He only recently negotiated his way out of an organization that did not spend to his expectations. There are signs, however, that Piniella already is feeling the pull of the game. He said he met and had "a nice talk" this week with the next owner of the Reds, Robert Castellini, and acknowledged having received at least one other phone call from a major league team.
