Termed named after Cubs' skipper Lou Piniella. It is the tendency to leave a struggling pitcher in the game until there is no hope of ever snatching victory from the jaws of defeat. Also, pulling a winning pitcher from the game, then letting the reliever stay in the game when he struggles and loses the game when the Cubs were once 11 ahead.
"The manager must be throwing the game- he let the pitcher walk the bases full and delivered a grand slam pitch- I hate when he's "Louing" it
