    “Most managers in MLB make less than $1 million. Is Piniella really worth that much more? Has he brought that much more value to the Cubs?”

    If you had asked me that question at the start of this year, I would have said yes w/o hesitation. However, this year, Lou looks like a befuddled elderly man who has lost his passion. I know he’s made statements to the contrary, but between the Lou of two years ago, and the Lou of today, I think we did ok. I think we made a mistake by picking up his option to early in the season. I’m all for Ryno or Bob (or even Alan) taking over though.

    I’m trying to look at this as a good sign — maybe Ricketts is going to be aggressive this offseason…

    Don’t get me wrong, I like Jaramillo (at least what I know of him), but I’m not going to get all jazzed about a new hitting coach.
