 Lou Piniella - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Piniella played for the Kansas City Royals from 1969-1973, winning AL Rookie of the Year in 1969.
During the 2005 season, Piniella was very critical of Devil Rays management for focusing too much on the future and not enough on immediate results, and for not increasing payroll quickly enough to field a competitive team (they started the season with a $30 million payroll, which was the lowest in Major League Baseball).
In his first two seasons with the Devil Rays, Piniella was able to improve the team somewhat, and they won a franchise-record 70 games in 2004, which was also their first season in which they did not finish last in their division.

Brett was known for many magical moments during his 21-season run with the Kansas City Royals, but his reputation as one of the most feared clutch hitters in baseball history will transcend the 20th century.
He broke into the major leagues in 1973 as a sure-handed but scatter-armed third baseman and finished his career 3,154 hits later as a first baseman.
Brett, a 13-time All-Star selection and 1985 Gold Glove winner, could have posted even better numbers if not for a series of nagging injuries, the product of the aggressive, hustling intensity he always brought to the field.
