Torre Fired, to be replaced by Piniella

According to the New York Daily News (via ESPN), Joe Torre will be fired and replaced by Lou Piniella. I don't see this working out to well. Joe Torre does a wonderful job dealing with both the massive egos in the Yankee clubhouse as well as the New York media; his biggest asset seems to be patience. Patience has never been one of Piniella's hallmarks. I honestly cannot see Piniella surviving the year in New York. I just think his temper will cause enough of a problem at some point that Steinbrenner will have no choice but to fire him.
