"My MLB HOF class of 2014 would be Tom Glavine, Greg Maddux, Frank Thomas, Mike Piazza, Craig Biggio, and Jeff Bagwell."
I grew up on JJ Redick, Shane Battier, Mike Piazza, Fonzi, Scott Stevens, and Marty Brodeur
Congrats to the first to correctly answer that Steve Reed gave up Mike Piazza's first home run.
I'm a baseball guy. How the *** does Craig Biggio get into the HOF over Mike Piazza or Curt Schilling? Liked Biggio but not HOF. No.
Two injustices: what happened to me...& Mike Piazza not in Hall of Fame.
Can anyone honestly tell me Mike Piazza was better than Bernie Williams, Derek Jeter, Paul O'Neill and others? I am serious.
Mike Piazza and Jeff Bagwell pose a dilemma for me. How those in the Hall of Fame may sway my next BBWAA HOF vote.
Huge Selection of Jackets at Low Prices
Mike Piazza was the best hitting catcher of his generation, but he's yet not worthy to be inducted into the Hall of Fame?…
Don't worry Mike Piazza if it was up to the BBWAA The Beatles 1988 induction to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame + Museum would have never happened due to rumors that Paul was dead !

Baseball’s largest Hall of Fame class in 60 years will be enshrined at Cooperstown this July, though Mike Piazza continues to wait on deck. Former Mets catcher Piazza drew closer to election, earning 69.9 percent of the ballot, putting him in good position for next year. A full 75 percent is require…
Again, Mike Piazza, the best hitting catcher who ever lived, doesn't get into the Baseball Hall of Shame, and neither does Jeff Bagwell, one of the greatest hitters of his generation. No Bonds, No Clemens, No Pete, NO ACKNOWLEDGEMENT from me. I used to love Cooperstown and go almost every year. Now I will never step foot into the place. I don't care if my two sons don't like my favorite sport because of it.
The show wants to know should Mike Piazza be in the Baseball Hall of Fame?
Mike Piazza and Jeff Bagwell belong in the Baseball Hall of Fame. Maybe next year is their year.
Next year...there should be two first ballot Hall of Famers...Ken Griffey Jr. and Trevor Hoffmann...Last time four players entered the Hall on the same day, was back in the 50's. Congrats to Randy Johnson (97.3%), Pedro Martinez (91.1%), John Smoltz (82.9%), and Craig Biggio (82.7%) - As always, you need 75% of the vote to get in. Mike Piazza should make it next year as well. He finished shy with a vote of 69.9% - Bonds (36.8%) and Clemens (37.5%) the notable PED guys didn't gain much support over last year...
I think the steroid issue in baseball is really gonna hit the fan when Andy Pettite is eligible. He seems to be the forgiven son. He admitted to his use "to get over an injury". Are we really supposed to believe that because of his tearful, heartfelt, apology, and wholesome persona, that the only time he juiced was to get healthy?? To get back on the field to fulfill he contract. He did it for the team, his fans. His name is not mentioned with the likes of his hometown stall mate Roger Clemens, teamates like A-rod, and the other positive testers of the era (Big Poppi, Manny, Braun) and so on. Not to mention the not so positive, yet presumed guilty boys. There doesn't seem to much talk about his eligibility. Sounds like a no doubter. Why is he a no doubter, when Mike Piazza can't get in? He didn't test positive for anything, he didn't have to confess to being in a stall with Roger Clemens (just dodged the bat) and there is no evidence of him being tied to any of those other chumps and their cronies. He i . ...
Someone has to explain to me how Craig Biggio and Pedro Martinez are Hall of Famers and Barry Bonds Roger Clemens and Mike Piazza are not.
Congrats to my favorite Dominican baseball player Pedro Martinez, on making the Hall of Fame. I am happy they got this right the first time and here is hoping on getting Mike Piazza in next year as a Met.

Willie P can't STFU about Mike Piazza and the "magic" of the day he brok the C's HR record.
I also advocate for Mike Piazza. I'm just not so infantile as to assume he's the only HOFer on the ballot
Mike Piazza closer to the HOF than Dale Murphy & Alan Trammel ever were. he'll be in before Bonds or Clemons & he's just as just as dirty
2 important lessons to take from Mike Piazza's HOF exclusion: never develop your upper body & always use Oxy clean on your back.
Mike Piazza was at 69.9 percent. He'll be in next year. Jeff Bagwell at 55.7 percent and Tim Raines at 55 percent.
How the *** is Mike Piazza not a Hall of Famer. Give me a break.
Mike Piazza not getting into the HOF on his second try is far less of a baseball libel than Gil Hodges never getting in.
Pedro Martinez, Randy Johnson, John Smoltz and Mike Piazza should be the only ones to get in.
Tuesday afternoon, the National Baseball HOF will announce Randy Johnson, Pedro Martinez, Craig Biggio, Mike Piazza and John Smoltz for 2015
That's gon be my new tradition. Wearing my age on a jersey. Mike Piazza in 2016, OJ in 2017, then Pippen etc.
Gary Sheffield is having the quietest HOF campaign ever. Think about it...Mike Piazza's bacne is getting more press.
Darryl Hamilton says Jeff Bagwell gets the edge over Mike Piazza for the HOF because he played great defensive 1B. Career -7.9 dWAR.
He did defend Keith Hernandez at the end and has a good point. “Marty Noble did not vote for Mike Piazza
Keith Hernandez, Gary Carter, Frank Viola, Mike Piazza . Sometimes it really does work out
I wonder what % chance there was on this date in 1982 would get Keith Hernandez or 1997 they'd get Mike Piazza.
Gary Carter, Keith Hernandez, John Olerud. Tom Seaver was before my time. Mike Piazza is the same age as me.

A Mike Piazza injury in 2004 necessitated a David Wright call up. Here we go for Dilson because of Murphy injury.
I don't get it. There have been plenty of big guys to have long careers as catchers, Carlton Fisk, Ivan Rodriguez, Mike Piazza, ect.
There's a Burt Reynolds facing a Mike Piazza in this game right now. Ah, minor league baseball.
That would make his aged 34-35 seasons better than the same years for Ivan Rodriguez, Johnny Bench, and Mike Piazza.

Apparently 55 AAA at bats and Travis d'Arnaud is Mike Piazza...until he does it in the bigs I'm not buying it
DYK Mike Piazza was a 62nd round draft pick in 1988, and was only selected because Tommy Lasorda was doing a family friend a favor.
year comes to mind, didn't look like any way possible to get him out, Mike Piazza in prime was scary good too, saw Bartolo

ON This Day in Baseball History. 2004. At Shea Stadium, Hall of Fame catchers Carlton Fisk, Johnny Bench, Gary Carter, and Yogi Berra take part in a pre-game ceremony to honor Mike Piazza for hitting the most home runs as a catcher in baseball history. The Mets’ backstop established the new mark, breaking Carlton Fisk’s record, with his 352nd home run on May 5.

New York Mets third baseman David Wright, bidding for his second consecutive fan-elected start and sixth start overall, has overtaken Nolan Arenado of the Colorado Rockies at the hot corner, in the third balloting update for the 85th All-Star Game, to be played on Tuesday, July 15th at Target Field in Minnesota. The next balloting update for the N.L. will be announced on Sunday, June 15th after ESPN announces the positional leaders as part of its “Baseball Tonight” telecast at 7:00 p.m. (ET). The fourth American League balloting results will be announced on Monday, June 16th after local rightsholder broadcasts announce the positional leaders. Wright, a seven-time All-Star, has received 859,082 votes and would join Hall of Famer Mike Schmidt (eight fan elections) as the only N.L. third basemen to earn at least six fan-elected starting assignments. In addition, Wright would join Mike Piazza (seven) and Darryl Strawberry (6) as the only players in Mets history to receive at least six fan elections. W ...
I did not see the flare up with Manny yesterday but did see Saturday's. I have no problem with what happen either day. Some made the comment that throwing a bat at someone is unsafe. I know that pitching inside or even hitting a player on purpose is part of the game. However the pitcher is throwing a hard object upwards at 90+ mph. Your telling me that is less dangerous than a flying bat 10 times slower. A ball 90+ coming at you from less than 60 feet away is a whole lot of a difference then a bat coming at you 15+ from 90 feet away. I remember a few years back Roger Clemens threw a splintered bat at Mike Piazza from about 10 feet away. I don't think he was suspended. It was talked about that night and that was it. I'm tired of hearing all the ragging on him by fans and analyst. I see all these post that this team has no fire and as soon as someone shows emotion on the field all *** breaks loose. I'm sure Buck and/or (Jones, Kaks, Cruz, Hardy or Davis) has talked with Manny. When Norris hit Hunter and w . ...

The Dodgers-Giants rivalry is a sports rivalry between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the San Francisco Giants ( Better Known As The Halloween Crew ) baseball teams of Major League Baseball (MLB). It is regarded as one of the most competitive and longest-standing rivalries in American baseball, with some observers considering it the greatest baseball rivalry of all time. The rivalry between the Dodgers and Giants began in the late 19th century when both clubs were based in the New York City area. The Dodgers played in Brooklyn (then a separate city, before being incorporated as a borough of Greater New York in 1898) and the Giants played at the Polo Grounds in Manhattan. After the 1957 season, Dodgers owner Walter O'Malley decided to move the team to Los Angeles for financial and other reasons. Along the way, he managed to convince Giants owner Horace Stoneham (who was considering moving his team to Minnesota) to preserve the rivalry by bringing his team to California as well. New York baseball fans were stu ...

Had another epic Lunch with my Buddy Phil. We always have a great time. Topics discussed. The god status of Derek Jeter. The Best Actor tournament. The upcoming Best Kick *** fictional character tournament. Bill Buckner. What would happen if Don Mattingly went to Rafael Santana's home? Yankees, Mets, Steelers, El Rey cable channel, My attending the Latina bars, Serenity & Firefly. Barry Bonds, Gary Carter & Mike Piazza. The validation of a WWE Hall of Fame. Why are all the best Mets in history also Yankees? Scarlett Johannsen. Jessica Alba. Famous people you wouldn't know were Latino. The AJ Duhe TV show idea. I'm sure I'm forgetting something in our 4 hours of catching up. Still totally EPIC!
Bonds vs. His Peers in 2007: In 2003 Major League Baseball implemented its steroid testing policy and either as a result, coincidence, or injury, many of Barry Bonds’ YOUNGER all-star peers free-falled into decline in the ensuing years. Some got caught using PEDs (Jason Giambi, Rafael Palmeiro); some were soon gone from the league (Juan Gonzalez, Jeff Bagwell, and Roberto Alomar); and others saw significant decreases in production and/or weight loss (Sammy Sosa, Todd Helton, Ivan Rodriquez, Mike Piazza, and Nomar Garciaparra). This list is not provided for needless witch-hunting, just for necessary referencing. The Natural: At age 43, two years after missing close to a year because of knee surgeries, Bonds was hitting home runs at an astonishing rate of 1 per every 11 at bats and maintained an on-base percentage of close to .500. Both of these figures led the National League and eclipsed Bonds' rates from his 2nd growth phase. Unlike many of his younger all-star contemporaries, he had failed no drug tes ...
On ESPN on Mike and Mike, they are discussing the baseball HOF. I couldn't agree with them more. The cliff note version for me is a HOF without Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens and Pete Rose is not really a HOF. How can we choose which players pay the penalty of not going to the HOF during this era. ARod should be in as well. More questionable for me are McGwire, Sosa, Palmero... But I would likely put them in. Biggio, Ivan Rodriguez, Mike Piazza... are all likely to make it and there is almost no doubt in my mind that they did steroids during their careers. Basically, for me their is no argument against guys like Bonds and Clemens. Their records and their late career heroics deserve an * in my mind but it does not erase their greatness as baseball players.

Baseball ties 5-5 with the Italian National Team, led by hitting coach, Mike Piazza! Following a full nine innings, ELEV|8 High School Baseball Team tied the professional team at 5-5. LHP Nick Vespi, and RHP Christian Olmos each pitched quality innings against the quality competitor, while many other players became hitting standouts. Roars from the crowd erupted when Luis Diaz-Santa blasted a 2 RBI triple to left field in the 4th and being down by 2 in the bottom of the ninth, Dominic Paolo hit a line drive single to right field to rally the team. Cole Dubet then hit his second single of the game, and Hector Morales knocked in a run on a single to close the gap to 5-4. Renaldo Rivera gets the tying RBI on a single line drive to center field. WHAT A GAME!
Mike Piazza hits a 2 out 2B in the bottom of the 5th to LCF. Todd Zeile up.

Jesus Montero with Kyle Seager’s work ethic is probably Mike Piazza. Instead, he has something short of Vin Baker’s work ethic.

The Super Bowl, Reformation, the Wind and Other Thoughts by Rev. Jensen Dear Members and Friends of the United Church of Norman - UCC, The Super Bowl has come and gone. Some folks are happy, some not so happy, and some just relieved the whole thing is over. I thought the game itself lacked excitement because the Broncos just never got started! Again, in my opinion, the commercials seemed to steal the show. At $4,000,000 for a 30-second spot they should have been good. I received an e-mail this week alerting me to an ad that didn't get aired because the sponsoring organization didn't have $4,000,000. I'm going to offer it up Sunday during our worship service as our Holy Word and hope you will be there to view it with us. It's sponsored by the NCAI (National Congress of American Indians) and depicts, I think in a powerful way, the case for removing the racist names and mascots from high school, college, and professional sports that has done so much harm to the dignity and pride of Native American peo ...
