"Uncle" Lou Piniella was introduced as Cubs manager today. Now, I won't say he is my first choice, I do think it means that there is a REAL sense of urgency. Some of my favorite quotes, besides the one up top:
I’m a fiery manager. I want to have fun, but I do make it demanding.
Player talent wins.
On On-Base Percentage:
My philosophy is to get 8 midgets and walk all the time.
Some names that have already been mentioned, as the Cubs will undoubtedly increase payroll (it had to be a part of Piniella's willingness to take the job): Moyer, A-Rod, Lee Elia, Carlos Lee, Alfonso Soriano.
