The Astros and Blue Jays aren't really options and you can make an argument for the Red Sox since he spent the majority of his career in Boston. The rings came in NY though and I think that is what they will look at.


I feel the same way. Ever since MLB took control over what team an inductee goes in under, I'd think it's going to be the Yankees. Although, Carter went in as an Expo despite having his most notorious days as a Met.

Good point about Carter although my opinion is that that had more to do with no Expos in the HoF and the Expos becoming the Nationals.

Piazza is guaranteed to go into the hall as a Met. Any other opinion is just California Dreamin'. }:-)

Agreed. When I hear the name Piazza, I think of the Mets.
