Just a day before starting the playoffs, the Cubs picked up the option on Skipper Lou Piniella for the 2010 season.
Sure, all he did was bring back-to-back division titles to the Cubs immediately after the team went 66-96 in 2006.
It feels good to have Lou locked up for a couple more years after the turnaround he has overseen.
Plus, anyone who can deal with Carlos Zambrano on a regular basis deserves a reward.
