Another Reason Why Lou Piniella Should Not Be Named Cubs Manager

See that uniform number? That's Piniella's favorite, and, um, it's not available for a Cub. Oh, sure, he could dress like this:

But then, I don't want the base-throwing, either. Fun, but ultimately meaningless.

This is, of course, tongue-in-cheek. Piniella could wear any uniform number he wanted to. Let's just hope it's another team's uniform. Or a jacket & tie, working for Fox in 2007. (Man, is he awful on the air!) Just keep him out of a Cubs uniform. Wrong choice. Wrong choice. Wrong choice.
