Lou Piniella back in the Ms dugout?

PiniellaSEATTLE — The very mention of his name conjures memories Randy Johnson, Ken Griffey Jr., the Kingdome, and –God forbid — a winning baseball team.

According to Fox Sports, Mariners management approached former Mariners Manager Lou Piniella about managing the team next year. The 70-year-old Piniella reportedly declined the teams’ “full-court press,” saying he was happy retaining only a minor roll in baseball as the Yankees announcer for 15 games or so a year.

“I’m happy doing what I’m doing, which is watching a little baseball, doing a little bit of television for the Yankees,” Piniella told Fox Sports.

Piniella’s winning record was 1,835-1,713 in 23 years as a manager in baseball teams such as the Ms, the New York Yankees, the Chicago Cubs and others.

The Mariners are one of four teams looking for a manager this offseason after Eric Wedge told the team he would not be coming back.

Fox Sports reported that former Mariners infielder Joey Cora is also being considered.
