Gonna be a hard year for the Baseball Hall Of Fame voting. First Timers include, among others: Frank Thomas, Tom Glavine, Greg Maddux and Jeff Kent; returnees from previous years include: Craig Biggio, Don Mattingly, Jeff Bagwell, Mike Piazza, Tim Raines, Lee Smith and Curt Schilling. Im not even gonna bother with the "steroid people" because there are much more deserving people for this year...If there was ever a sure bet First Time Electee in my lifetime thus far it HAS to be Greg Maddux. Im reasonably sure Thomas and Glavine will get in...not gonna cry if Kent doesnt. Also deserving of a bump up this year IMO are Raines, Piazza and Biggio. But it will be a HUGE disservice if Jack Morris, in his final year of "standard" eligibility doesn't get in. The others like Mattingly, Smith and Schilling MAY eventually get in too but not this year with too many more deserving players(sorry Donnie Baseball I'm behind you but your shortened career counts against you despite my thinking it shouldn't.)
PED's or no PED's, Rodger Clemens, Barry Bonds, Mike Piazza all deserve a spot in baseball Hall of Fame...but Greg Maddux is a no doubter this year!
The Baseball Hall of Fame ballots are out. Greg Maddux better make it on the first try. As for others, not so sure. Tom Glavine should be a gimme. Frank Thomas? Maybe. Mike Piazza? Possibly. Jeff Kent and Craig Biggio could cancel each other out. And there's no chance for Bonds, McGwire, Sosa, and Clemens. Your thoughts? (
A bunch of former Mets are on this list, including Mike Piazza, Jeff Kent, Tom Glavine, and Armando Benitez. It's...

CHECK THIS OUT FROM Mike Piazza! "Okay, I’m really angry about the news coverage about the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare). Yes, the law is complex, convoluted, and complicated. So why isn’t anyone observing that the reason for this is that our bought-and-sold politicians were too cowardly to do the right thing, which is single-payer, universal coverage? Health care is a human right. Why isn’t the media asking what alternatives the critics propose? Are they suggesting that we simply should leave people out of health care, drop those with pre-existing conditions, and let insurance companies cancel care when people lose their jobs or get too expensive? Healthcare is a human right for all, not just the healthy and wealthy. Why doesn’t someone challenge the people who keep saying that folks without health insurance can simply go to the emergency room? That is deadly to those who are having an emergency, and it is the most expensive way to treat people. Health care is a human right, and you should not ...

50 Revised Rules for Women These rules will hopefully help women understand men: 1. SportsCenter starts at 10:00 pm and runs an hour. This is a great time to pay bills, put laundry in the dryer or talk to your sister. 2. Even if its a common cold or a sprained ankle, no one, ever, has been in worse shape. 3. Let us know how brave we are for dealing with that common cold or sprained ankle. 4. Two hot dogs and a beer at a baseball game do, in fact, constitute going out to dinner. 5. Unlike you, we essentially want to dress just exactly like all our friends. Thus, you need not go much further than the Gap, J. Crew or the local Patagonia store. 6. Overall, we can cook better than you, so if you make dinner, it better be good. 7. If we see you in the morning and at night, why call us at work? 8. Hangovers are never our fault, and we deserve sympathy. 9. Led Zeppelin and the Who are good make-out bands. Tori Amos, Alanis Morrisette and Liz Phair are not. 10. The fact that your best friend just broke up with her ...

I got the number 7 in the "things you didn't know about me" game from Cindy DeRuyter. If you want to play, "like" this status and I will give you a number. 1) Early on when I learned my brother and sister started drinking I wrote a blood oath (in red marker) that I would never drink, would support my parents and put my siblings thru rehab. The blood oath, placed in our family Bible, then mysteriously disappeared (to my parents' displeasure) and my drinking in my 20's ended up putting Marc and Jen's drinking to shame. 2) Once had a very large collection of pro wrestling action figures that now are the possession of one of my exes' son (or by now in the garbage). It's sad I had so many and even sadder I miss having them. 3) Have heard "Do you know who you look like?" too many times in my life. Most times it made no sense. At different times in my life I have been told I looked like (to name a few) Fred Savage, Jay Leno, Tom Cruise, Richard Lewis, Tony Stewart, Mike Piazza, Rob McElhenney, George Michael an ...
Johnny Bench, Yogi Berra and Mike Piazza the 3 best catchers of all time.
You know what, Sports was much better in the 60's, 70's, 80's, and early 90's, not like the crap we have to see today!!! In Pro Wrestling, you had greats like Terry "Hulk" Hogan, Ric Flair, "Macho Man" Randy Savage, Bret the hit man Hart, and Douglas "Ox Baker", and in Baseball, you got Don Mattingley, Yoga Berra, Pete Rose, Steve Yeager, Mike Piazza, plus many others, Football had Fred Dryer, Alex Karras, and Joe Namath, Basketball had, Magic Johnson, Walt Frasier, Wilt Chaimberlain, Larry Bird, and others!!! I'd rather see classic sports shows then the new garbage we are subjected to when we watch the networks!!!

On Fan Appreciation Day today, the will induct Mike Piazza to their Hall of Fame »
Congrats to one of my heroes, Mike Piazza for being elected to the New York Mets Hall of Famer. No questions ask that Piazza was the face of the franchise during his time with the New York Metropolitans. I'm really looking forward into Piazza getting elected into the Coopertown's Baseball Hall of Fame someday. Piazza is one of the greatest hitting catchers of all time, and there's no arguments with that. Lets hope someday that Piazza will get that plague in Cooperstown, and one day have his number  retired with that great Tom Seaver (41), Casey Stengel (37) and Gil Hodges (14)

I forgot to mention yesterday that it was 12 years ago that the first sports event since the 9/11 attacks took place at Shea Stadium between the Mets and the Braves. It was an emotional night as both teams shook hands, and remembered all thise who were lost on that day before the game started. The two huge highlights of the game were Liza Minnelli singing New York, New York, with a few NYPD officers doing a kick line for her the whole song, and og course, the big moment was when Mike Piazza hiy a two run home run in the bottom of the 8th inning, which gave New York City a huge lift, the Mets won the game 3-2, and still today, it remains the most memorable nights in sports history.

Good morning Know it Alls. In 1987-Darryl Strawberry joins Howard Johnson as the first teammates ever to achieve 30 homers and 30 steals in the same season. Also, on this day in 1997 - Mike Piazza becomes the first Dodger, and the first player in 25 years, to hit a ball out of Dodger Stadium. Piazza's 478-foot drive off Colorado's Frank Castillo bounces off the left field pavilion roof. Pittsburgh's Willie Stargell was the only other player to hit a ball out of the stadium (in right field), accomplishing the feat in both 1969 and 1973. Have a great day!

Congrats to the Blackhawks, but I gotta say this Bruins team did something remarkable. Reminiscent of the '01 Yankees, they took a city, brought to its knees, and carried it on their backs. After hearing disappointed fans still cheer their team, that's a sign that Boston is back and Boston Strong is now Boston Stronger.

Something for us to consider from Mike Piazza, via The Center for Progressive Reform's Daily Word: Charlie Chaplin was once one of the best known entertainers in the world. At a fundraiser in Monte Carlo they held a Charlie Chaplin lookalike contest. It was judged by some of Charlie's closest celebrity friends. What they didn't know was that Charlie himself entered the contest. He came in third. In a contest for the most Christ-like life, where would we place? Although we are often unaware of the areas in our lives where we are not congruent with the values we profess, those areas still damage us and drain us of spiritual strength, power, and vitality.
this just reminded me of the Mike Piazza and Roger Clemens . fiasco for some reason, don't know why.

I personally feel the Mets should cut or trade every veteran with the exception of John Buck and Scott Rice, it is a really bad kept secret that it has always been about 2014-2015, I would rather pay to see the future improving over seeing the past replying. I would prefer to see the rotation of Zachary Wheeler, Matt Harvey, Jon Neise, Rafael Montero, and Dillion Gee, I would prefer to see a Rotation consisting of Bobby Parnell, Jenry Mejia, Jeurys Familia, Collin McHugh and Scott Rice to name a few, With a fielding lineup of, Reese Havens, Daniel Murphy, David Wright, Ike Davis, Lucas Duda, Matt Den Decker, Cory Vaughn, John Buck. Supported by a Bench of Ruben Tejada, Juan Lagares, Travis D'Arnaud Wilmer Flores, overall, not to mention the coaching needs to promote Wally to skipper, John Franco should be the pitching coach, Mike Piazza should be the hitting coach, Keith Hernandez, should be the bench coach, first base coach should be John Olerud, third base coach should Edgardo Alfonzo just an idea.
