Former Chicago Cubs manager Lou Piniella will be a special contributor to the Yankees Entertainment & Sports (YES) Network for the 2012 season.
I know I'll be using my MLB At Bat app to tune in to a few Yankees games to check out Sweet Lou's broadcast stylings. I didn't pay too much attention to him during his brief stint with Fox (?) before managing the Cubs. Oh, and remember, every time he says "Look...," you have to drink.
Larry Stone's usually on target, but here he just has a "hunch". Not this time, Larry -- after Lou's tearful final press conference when he said he was taking the uniform off for the last time, I believe Lou. He's retired for good.
OK, so this is my own piece -- I wanted to write a longer form piece for SB Nation Chicago about this topic.
So have at it. My basic point is that if it's not Girardi (and I doubt he's available), it should be Ryne Sandberg. Time to bring this job back into the Cubs family. Hope you will take the time to read the whole piece.
