Lou Piniella is the first manager the Cubs have had in my life that I didn't want to see go, so he will, of course, retire at the end of the season.
A good portion of Cubdom will throw a party, but this is a sad day for me.
Now, in addition to a team that is aging faster than this guy...
... the Cubs will likely have a rookie manager who "played the game right," a Northwestern alum that no one seems interested in holding onto despite having success, or God help me, Bob Brenly.
It's a Way of Life.
