"Sweet Lou and the Cubs" chronicles from the inside-out Lou Piniella's stirring and celebrated quest for a championship in 2008--which would be the Cubs' first in 100 years and one of the greatest American sporting stories of our lifetime. Drawing on the story of Piniella's Cubs debut in 2007 and his history as baseball's ultimate firebrand, veteran Cubs reporter George Castle gives fans the "real" story behind the building of the best Cubs team in decades and their 2008 regular and post-season play. This is sports writing at its best, featuring Piniella's old-school style and baseball scientist's mind; wild swings in the Cubs' win-loss fortunes; the inside scoop on a Cubs' front-office dramatically more aggressive than its predecessors; the byplay of daily clubhouse life; and Piniella's colorful proclamations and homespun philosophy, along with his interactions with his coaches, players, ball-club executives, media, fans, and celebrity hangers-on.
George Castle has covered the Cubs and Major League Baseball since 1980 for a variety of newspapers and magazines, and for the Times of Northwest Indiana, the Chicago area's fourth-largest daily newspaper. An author of eight books, he hosts and produces a weekly syndicated baseball show, Diamond Gems, which is broadcast on 41 affiliates in 14 states and podcast on the YourSportsFan.com sports site. Castle has become a multimedia purveyor of Cubs inside information and analysis that has been unmatched, using a network of close clubhouse and front-office relationships to continually produce scoops and informative pieces that outflank other media. He has gotten to know-and gain the trust-of almost all of the important figures in the franchise, including Lou Piniella. Castle has also appeared on a wide variety of network radio-including ESPN, Sporting News, and Sirius-and local sports-talk radio programs. He was tapped by producers as one of the historical experts on the Cubs for Wait Til' Next Year: The Saga of the Chicago Cubs, the HBO 2006 special on the team. He lives in Chicago.
