and also having an ad on the left with a woman wearing a thong kinda contradicts the whole effort doesn't it?
That's tasteful, though.
Piazza's reputation as a poor defensive catcher is overrated. He actually improved quite a bit as the years went on and he adjusted better to the NY scrutiny and the position. He is by no means a Gold Glover and won't come close, but his reputation as terrible (esp. as his career went on) is unwarranted.
That being said, if you ever saw him at first you know why he wanted to catch.
