Respected Yankee Alumni Lou Piniella has signed a 3 year deal to manage the Chicago Cubs.
Piniella, a winner both as a player and a manager, hopes to mold the sorry Cubs into a respectful contender and finally get that team to a World Series appearance. It is about time the Cubs management takes winning seriously, and this is the first step in that direction.
What's the next most logical step? - A-Rod. Trusted sources have informed Pinstripes that they are actively putting together a multi player package to propose to the Yankees as a sweet heart deal for Piniella.
A-Rod and Lee as book ends on the corners of the infield for the Cubs would be a powerful combination. If the Yanks do make a deal there is not doubt people in NY will be up in arms and in the streets - the only question is, will it be in protest or a parade?
