retail news in context, analysis with attitude

Lou Piniella, who moved from a career playing with Major League Baseball teams that included the New York Yankees, Kansas City Royals, Cleveland Indians and Baltimore Orioles to a managerial career with the Yankees, Cincinnati Reds, Seattle Mariners, Tampa Bay Devil Rays and, finally, the Chicago Cubs, announced yesterday his plans to retire at the end of the season.
KC's View:
I’ve always loved Piniella’s fiery approach to the game, and wished many times that he’d come to the Mets, a team that could use that kind of passion and maybe even a little bit of fear of the manager.

I also wish that he could’ve brought the Cubs to the promised land - the World Series championship that has eluded the team for more than a century. It would have been fitting, but it seems a remote possibility at best. no matter - Piniella always has been fun to watch, and we here at MNB wish him the best.
