Last Appeal to Lou Piniella

Dear Lou,

For my money, Lou, you are the Manager-of-the-Year!  Cub fans everywhere are grateful for the magnificent job you did in molding this team and taking us from last to first.  But even the Manger-of-the-Year can make a mistake.  Your one mistake is in insisting that Ryan Dempster is the Cub closer.  Okay, you have kept your promise for the regular season.  But now its over.  I know that every now and then Dempster looks okay.  But as you must have learned by now, Dempster is also an accident waiting to happen.  I am making this appeal on behalf of the majority of Cub fans.  Please, please reconsider.  I know many fans with heart problems that turn off the TV or radio, when he comes in.  Ryan Dempster, all by himself, is capable of ruining our chances of victory. Even the ultimate Cub fan, Ron Santo, will privately agree with this request.  You have several good choices for closer, Carlos Marmol, Bob Howry, or even Kerry Wood.  Please, Lou, consider this last appeal.
