6/25 Lou & Stone make up

Lou Piniella and Steve Stone made peace on Friday. The Cubs manager and White Sox broadcaster exchanged jabs during the last Cubs-White Sox Interleague matchup June 11-13 at Wrigley Field. Piniella joked Friday that the two “closed doors and threw a few jabs.”

Actually, they talked it out and have agreed to disagree.

“Everything is fine,” Piniella said. “I’ve known Steve a long time. Everybody doesn’t agree with what other people say at times. We talked it out, shook hands and it’s all behind us.”

On June 11, Piniella lashed out at Stone who had been critical of the way the Cubs were handling outfielder Tyler Colvin. Stone had said the rookie outfielder should be playing every day and that Piniella could not handle young players.

“The whole thing was basically I know what I’m doing with young kids,” Piniella said Friday. “We talked about the situation — it’s over with. I don’t have any problem with Steve or anybody else. I just want to do my job the best I can and win baseball games with the Chicago Cubs and nothing more and nothing less.”
