Mike Piazza

Should anyone expect him to get much playing time after Cust did a wonderful job in the DH spot the past few days and Piazza's 0-5 showing yesterday. Should I dump him for another C this week?

I dropped him last Sunday and picked up Bengie Molina.

Catcher has been a problem for me all season. There are just not too many good fantasy Catchers.

Mike Piazza has hardly been playing the past week. His stats have been going south.

Who's available in your league?

I'd take Estrada over Piazza actually. In the end I like them both to finish strong over the rest of the scrubs.

Piazza? LOL!! I won't even bring up the signature picture you use(MATT CAIN??) Wow. There is a legend in the making!

Look...For the season, Bengie Molina is hitting .267 with 12 Home Runs and 63 Rbi's. He's had 375 At-Bats and scored 24 Runs.

In Molina's past 10 games he has 8 Hits in 35 At-Bats. In those 10 games he has hit 2 Home Runs and 9 Rbi's.

In contrast...Mike Piazza is htting .277 for the season in 188 At-Bats. Piazza has a paltry 3 Home Runs and 24 Rbi's. Wow! That is very, very weak.

In Piazza's past 10 games he is 6/37 with 0 Home Runs and 4 Rbi's.

I don't think selecting Molina over Piazza this past Sunday for my weekly roster is even debatable.
