Cubs fans, beware: There's a possibility that Lou Piniella could end up working for Mark Cuban. That would be a calm partnership and in no way combustible.

Several reports claim that Cuban has formally filed application papers to buy the Cubs. This certainly isn't good new for Pirates fans, who have been hoping Cuban would save their franchise for years now; Cuban was clearly aiming higher.

As a Cardinals fan, we hope Cuban doesn't get the team because, you know, he might actually try to make them, you know, win. But man, imagine this guy hanging out in the world's largest and most historic frat bar that is Wrigley Field. It's not every day you get to do kegstands with the owner.
