Lou Pinella knew he was about to use the wrong word, but used it anyway.

Piniella, working with Ken Singleton during the Yankees-Red Sox exhibition tilt on YES Wednesday, got in a discussion about the Marlins sending players — including Jose Reyes, Mark Buehrle and Josh Johnson — to Toronto, and getting relatively nothing in return.

“I don't want to use the word ‘raped,’ but they (Toronto) basically took a lot of talent from the Miami Marlins.”
