“Question” and “stock label” are not in sync. Piniella could announce tomorrow that he will retire at end of season. In that case, “Lou Piniella: How long will he manage the Cubs?” would pay out as of last Cubs game which could be as late as November if Cubs go to 7 games in the World Series. On the other hand, in that scenario “Date Piniella announces retirement” would pay out July 15th.

Probably worthwhile clarifying.

Don’t know where the phrase ‘Date Piniella announces retirement’ came from. This market doesn’t necessarily have anything to do with his retirement, or when the last game he manages is, but when the Cubs announce that he is no longer the manager, for whatever reason.

Duplicate market. Why?
