The following exchange just took place on "Cold Pizza:"

Host Jay Crawford: You left the Devil Rays, and now you're with Mastercard. What's your relationship with them, Lou?


Lou Piniella: I'm teaming up with Mastercard and Hyatt for their Faster Free Nights Program. Gold passport members who use their Mastercard at Hyatt destinations get one free night for every two stays. I encourage yourself, Jay, and your cohorts to use this program to get yourself some free nights.

Jay Crawford: Free nights. Always a good thing.

Honestly, somebody please give Lou Piniella a new job. It hurts us to see him like this. He's talking like a captured journalist in Iraq.
