Sweet Lou Finishes His Career

After earlier this season announcing that he would retire at the end of the season, Chicago Cubs manager Lou Piniella has stepped up that timetable, opting instead to make the August 22nd home game versus the Atlanta Braves his last game.
Piniella's mother has been sick of late and he has opted to leave the Cubs to head home to Tampa to be there with her.

While Piniella was never able to get the Cubs out of the first round in either of his postseason appearances, having a world-class manager in the dugout for the Cubs gave the team playoff aspirations every season because of his style. Sweet Lou will be missed.
