disappointing news
posted by soe 11:19 am

Mike Piazza, former catcher for the Mets, retires.

I was lucky enough to see him play for both the Mets and the Padres. Even as he headed into the twilight of his career after the Mets, he was still a dynamic player with a dangerous bat and a seasoned ability to direct pitchers in tense situations.

I’m glad that he was able to finish his career on his own terms, and I look forward to seeing him as a coach sometime in the future. (And I don’t care what Tommy Lasorda says, Mike. Go into the Hall of Fame as a Met, please!)
