Since Lou Piniella retired after Sunday's game, I've heard people bring up Lou's Hall of Fame credentials.
While his 23 seasons and 1,835 wins are impressive, I think he falls short of the Hall of Fame.
He won just one World Series (1990 Reds), which many non-Hall of Fame managers have done. He is just 122 games over .500 for a winning percentage of .517.
Lou Piniella, a very good manager over a long period time? Absolutely. Hall of Fame manager? No.
By the way, nice of the Cubs, in typical fashion, to lose Sunday 16-5 to the Braves. Way to sack up for your departing skipper.
