Call me crazy, but I have a very good feeling he will the one of the top fantasy catchers this year. I am really surprised when I see some sights and publications that have had some very low projections for him, considering prob all he will do this year is DH. To me, thats all the guy needs to revive his career. Yes, I realize he is as old as dirt, and he is past his prime, but everyone said the same thing about Frank Thomas last year, when he signed w/ Oakland, and what did he do??? Here are a couple of predictions I will make right now about Piazza, and you tell me if I need to lay off the liquor!!!
He will get 500 ab's this year... (hasn't done so since 2001)
He will hit about 25-30 hr's this year (hit 22 in 399 ab's in San Diego last year)
He will have 80-95 rbi's this year (not since 02' season)
He will have at least a batting avg higher than .285 (not since 03')
Maybe I am oversighting the fact that he will only be DH'ing this year, but I really don't think I am. I feel his enough gas in his tank to have a really productive year at the plate. What do you guys think??
285- 27hr's- 90 rbi's- 75runs- 25sb's (just kidding)
