2/2 Piniella to Giants

Lou Piniella will join the Giants as a consultant. The San Francisco Chronicle is reporting that the former Cubs manager will work for the defending World Champions and be involved in evaluating and advising on player movement and scouting. Giants GM Brian Sabean and Piniella were together with the Yankees in the ’80s (Sabean spent eight years in New York from 1986-90). Sabean interviewed Piniella, 67, to succeed manager Felipe Alou after the 2006 season. Piniella, who retired Aug. 23, will be based in Florida.
