Piniella “Worn Out” from Cubs Convention; “Fire Lou Piniella!” Circles, Bides Time

CHICAGO–It took a convention for new Cubs skipper Lou Piniella to emerge from his winter hibernation, and he came out with his teeth bared. Cubs reliever Scott Eyre suggested that the Cubs Convention “overwhelmed” Piniella. Piniella told Eyre, “I’m a little worn down right now.”

A little worn down, and a LOT sissified. Maybe Piniella shouldn’t sit so close to Prior, who is clearly touching himself.

Upon hearing that Piniella was exhausted and weak, two reporters from Fire Lou Piniella! flanked the manager cautiously, crouching low and taking care not to make a sound in the tall carpet.

During the conference, Piniella called the fans “a tough crowd” after they grilled Cubs G.M. Jim Hendry during a Q-and-A session about his misguided faith in the Cubs pitching staff. The laughter the response elicited gave a third FLP! reporter the opportunity to scamper up the scaffolding erected over Piniella’s head and wait to pounce.

Exhausted, this Piniella has been separated from the herd.

Piniella took a jab at Notre Dame during the conference, as well, saying, “I think LSU might have helped [new Cubs pitcher Jeff Samardzija] make that decision [to forgo the NFL draft and play baseball].” More laughter erupted from the crowd, providing a perfect cover for the three FLP! reporters to call to one another, indicating that all three were in position for the attack.

Piniella was escorted from the Convention before FLP! reporters had a chance to make their move.

    I was too focused on putting my ball away before it got to close to Jim and he “put it away” if you know what I mean.
