Piniella defends Cubs style
Lou Piniella was asked Tuesday if he was satisfied with the way he has managed this season. "I've managed the same way," he said. "I've said if you want to blame somebody, blame me for the whole thing. I've said it before and I'll say it again. But look, I've managed the same way I've always managed. I let guys play. I play people I think should be on the field. I give everybody an opportunity and stay out of their way as much as possible. "Sometimes things don't work out. Sometimes they do and sometimes they don't, and this year it just seems like a struggle." Piniella also defended his team against the rap it's too laid-back.

Redskins sold tickets to scalpers
In recent years, the Redskins ticket office itself has sold tickets into this secondary market, making it easier for fans of opposing teams to invade FedEx. Thousands of general admission tickets were sold to brokers, who resold them on the secondary market, often at higher-than-retail prices, according to interviews and internal Redskin documents. These were often tickets to the very seats that Redskins fans have waited years to get. The Redskins acknowledged that the sales were made but said they were against team policy.
