Lou Piniella doesn't want to say "rape" but says it anyway (video)

Former Chicago Cubs manager Lou Piniella made a rape reference during a Florida Marlins-Toronto Blue Jays spring training game a couple days ago. If you didn't know, Lou Piniella is now calling games for the YES Network as a color analyst. Lou Piniella didn't want to say "raped," he preferred to say "took a lot of talent from." However, by telling us he doesn't want to say rape, he just did. Yes, Piniella went there. He compared one Major League Baseball team looting another to a person being forced into having sex against his/her will. How awkward and disgusting. As if that isn't bad enough, and I know that's very very very very very very bad, MLB Advanced Media (a term of Orwellian doublespeak as you will ever find) doesn't want you to hear Lou Piniella make his unfortunate rape...analogy? reference? simile? attempt at a very bad/dark joke...
