Open Thread 8/22: Braves at Cubs: Sweet Lou's Final Game

New, 1462 comments

Lou Piniella has decided to step down as manager of the Chicago Cubs and today will be the last game that the legend ever manages. Filling in as the interim head coach will be Mike Quade starting on Monday. Mike Minor is starting for the Braves against Randy Wells. Wells has thrown the ball better than his numbers would lead you to believe, but I feel an offensive surge coming from the Braves today as they look to take the series. The game starts at 2:20 EST.

The Braves' lineup against Piniella's Cubs is:
