Piazza

Postby Amazinz » Wed Aug 17, 2005 6:10 pm

I haven't seen a report myself but on the Mets fan site is reporting per WFAN that Piazza has a hair line fracture in his hand. Day to day but not going on the DL.

Thats all I heard too. Don't you think it is strange for them to say that a fracture could only be a couple days? I mean, when is the last time that you saw a guy with a hairline fracture not go on the DL?

They are probably going to keep him off the DL until Castro needs a day off. As soon as they need to call a Catcher up (if it takes that long) they will retroactively DL him then. I'm not really sure how serious hair line fractures are or how long they take to heal.

It's official now. Piazza going on the DL retroactively and DiFelice is getting called up.

Yea, how long till he could be affactive again, I don't care when he's back. He he won't be affective for me this year again, I can't waist my roster spot on him. It is bad enough that I had to keep him in this week because I didn't have anyone else to drop in order to pick up a catcher. If anyone has a clue as to if he will be affective again this year, let me know please....thanks.

Well there aren't going to be too many catchers on the waiver wire that have the upside of Piazza. So I would stash him on the DL if you can but if you can't I wouldn't hesitate to drop him for a replacement. There are too many question marks right now just to hold onto him if you need the spot for a productive player.

would you rather have him on your DL slot, or craig wilson? at least craig's not coming back from a broken hand...i'm just having a lot of trouble believing that mikey "pert" piazza's going to be able to just wash that pain right out of his hair.

It's a hair line fracture not a full blown break. So far the reports coming out of the Mets camp are fairly positive but that's all I know.

Sounds about like the same injury Yadi had. He was on the DL about a month.
