“Sweet Lou” Piniella will retire after the season

compiled from staff, wire and Chicago Cubs news

The  Chicago Cubs thought when they hired Lou Piniella as their manager, that the team would be able to erase all those years without a championship and win a few. That hasn’t happened and Lou Piniella told the media that he is tired of chasing titles and will retire at the end of the 2010 season.

The Cubs have been one of baseball’s disappointing teams with such stars as Alfonso Soriano, Aramis Ramirez, Carlos Zambrano and Derrick Lee having off-seasons. They team has spent most of the year behind Cincinnati, St. Louis and Milwaukee in the NL Central Division.

The Cubs hired Piniella after the 2006 season and they won the NL Central in 2007 and 2008 but never advanced to the World Series.

The 66-year-old fiery manager, has made five trips to the World Series in his career and has three championship rings. His career record is 1,827-1691 overall and he is 308-271 with the Cubs. He trails only Tony La Russa, Bobby Cox and Joe Torre in victories among active managers.

He also has managed the New York Yankees, Cincinnati Reds, Seattle Mariners and the Tampa Bay Rays.
