Or even 10 HR's.

Onethingabout Piazzais that he is a true baseballplayer.
he wants to beinit,hewantstoplay and he wants to leave a legacy.

The guy does not want to ride a bench and see other people play instead of him.

IMO he stilll has a sandlot kid in him and will do everything he can to prove himself.

best of luck to the guy.

He will always be a class act in my eyes and hope he surprises many by getting 25 homers.

Hall of fame guy making best of the twighlight.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Financially, it was either Miguel Olivo and Mark Loretta in the starting lineup next season or Mike Piazza/Doug Mirabelli and Josh Barfield in the starting lineup next season. I like option B a more.

The article on the mlb.com front page reads like this:

"Packing a Hall of Fame-worthy bat along with some well-worn tools of ignorance, Mike Piazza is returning to Southern California, where his career began. The Padres and the 12-time All-Star catcher agreed on Sunday to a one-year, $2 million contract."

Yet when you click the link to read the full story, ignorance is replaced with intelligence. Does someone at mlb.com hate Piazza? :-?

Wow, don't forget to start anyone that has two working legs against San Dieg now... The value of base-stealers in the NL West just increased. Oh yea.
...Boston papers now and then suffer a sharp flurry of arithmetic on this score; indeed, for Williams to have distributed all his hits so they did nobody else any good would constitute a feat of placement unparalleled in the annals of selfishness. -Updike
