Tampa's own Lou Piniella has announced his retirement as Chicago Cubs manager, effective at the end of the 2010 season.
He told TBO.com that he needs to get home: "I knew even then that this was going to be it. After this year, it's over. My family needs me home, my friends need me home and I need to be home. That's it."
And already the boo-birds are buzzing, with John Romano saying that Lou's years in Tampa Bay may keep him from entering the Hall of Fame.
