3/12/11, Bill Madden, "That was quite
an interesting dinner party at Malio's restaurant in Tampa last Thursday night - Lou Piniella and Tino Martinez
and their wives along with Alex Rodriguez and Cameron Diaz.
Cracked Piniella, who is now a special assistant to Giants GM Brian Sabean:
"It was a Seattle Mariners
reunion dinner. Those two guys won a lot of games for me over there. Then I got Tino traded to the Yankees and what does he do? He turns around and helps beat me in the playoffs. I didn't count on that.""
