yep. piazza is back to his normal self. he'll be unbelievable in spring training and on the DL when you need him. ;-)

i'm not taking a chance on him unless he falls pretty far in my draft.

i wouldn't take him early. too many good catchers this year, and thats a position i normally like to fill late in the draft anyway.

I would rank him 2nd in catchers behind Posada but will not be drafting him as he will be gone before I am ready to take a catcher.

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

I like Javy and Posada over Piazza. I think Javy will excel in Baltimore b/c he can DH on off days and when he needs rest.

With him playing some first -- and maybe a lot of first by the end of the season -- I do agree with DK here.

This is how I rank the TOP 5 catchers based on Batting:

1. Posada
2. I-Rod
3. Mike Piazza
4. Varitek
5. Lopez

I see Piazza regaining the top spot for catchers this year, if he plays 1st base often and approaches 500 ab's.

His OPS has fallen each of the last 4 years. He's still good but his 30+ homer days are over.
