i'm lookin at a tailspin of .250/14/50 :-t

he may get hot later, as he is and always was a streaky player, but i'll take a more consistent estrada any day.

Yes consistent Estrada is looking mighty purty anchoring my bench. :-D

Unless Piazza just explodes at some point, he is permanently benched in favor of Kendall, who I drafted in case, well, this happened.

I'd love to be optimistic and say he will return to form.......so I will, In this line up, i think he'll get around 80 rbi (if he stays healthy and in the cleanup spot).

I wont count him out yet. The guy has been taking some good rips lately. At this stage of his career he is a streak hitter but a catcher with better offensive numbers than him this year will be hard to find. I project .280 30hr 85 rbi. Not great to piazza standarb but better than most catchers.

Remember the only reason he did not have a monster year last year was his injury

He looked pretty good tonight. 3-4, R, RBI. Raised his BA about 30 points. :-]

ridiculous that he would be dropped in an nl only league...he leads the nl in rbi among catchers, bats cleanup behind three guys who should be able to score a bunch of runs, and is slumping batting averagewise...it's way to early to give up on piazza, unless for some reason you have an elite catcher on your roster
