When nothing else matters, mash Lou Piniella with Metallica

Big League Stew

The Chicago Cubs are eight games under .500, just lost an error-filled game to Oakland and are another poor few weeks from a second half of irrelevance. With that in mind, whoever decided to mix Lou Piniella's Steve Stone rant with some Kill 'Em All-era Metallica is an absolute genius.

Yeah, Piniella seems like the guy to tell James Hetfield to turn that racket down, but that's exactly the point, isn't it? The resulting mashup somehow paints a perfect picture of impending doom and what could be a hot and apocalyptic final summer for Piniella on Chicago's North Side.

Speaking of testy times in Wrigleyville, this YouTube video (language warning) says the unidentified man cursing in the background is none other than Piniella himself. There's no way to tell if it's definitely Sweet Lou, though it's a heck of an impersonation if it isn't.
