Cubs manager Piniella retiring after season 

Chicago Cubs manager Lou Piniella is going to retire at the end of the season.

Piniella announced his decision Tuesday before a game against the Astros. The 66-year-old manager says he is looking forward to spending more time with his family.

He says announcing his retirement now — just after the All-Star break — gives the team time to find a replacement.

Piniella is in the fourth and final year of his contract with the Cubs, who have struggled this year and have gone 102 years without a World Series title.

He has been a manager for more than 22 years. He led the New York Yankees (1986-88), Cincinnati Reds (1990-92), Seattle Mariners (1993-2002) and Tampa Bay (2003-05) before arriving in Chicago. He won the World Series as a manager with Cincinnati.
