"Sweet" Lou Piniella announced on July 20 that this will be his last season. He managed in the Major Leagues for 23 seasons, amassing a 1827-1691 record at the helm of the Yankees, Reds, Devil Rays, Cubs and Seattle Mariners. In Seattle, Piniella managed one of the best teams in baseball history in 2001, but was never able to bring a championship to the Pacific Northwest. Piniella won the 1990 World Series with the Reds and won 90 or more games eight different times.
