Piniella’s excuses

“This isn’t life or death,” he said. “It’s a game. It’s entertainment. … But look … there are important issues in this country that people should be paying attention to, not only what the Cubs do or do not do. I want to win as much as anybody, but if you can’t be loose, and have some fun and you can’t enjoy the moment, then you don’t belong here.” — Lou Piniella

Usually, leaders don’t start talking this way unless they’re convinced they don’t have a chance. Why can’t the Cubs ever get a manager who doesn’t try to distract people from the fact that they aren’t as good as their fans think they are?
