This is not true at all. Who bats in front of Piazza? Matsui? Posada batts 6th behinf A-Rod, Giambi and Sheff. Honestlky who would you rather have batting in front of you.


true. but i still think there's inherent value in batting 4th in the rotation.

How 'bout Mastui, Reyes and Floyd. Not too shabby. :-b

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

both of the points are valid but the thing is that when completely healthy Piazza is one of the best hitting catchers of all time, should put up better numbers than Posada hitting anywhere form 3 to 6 on any other team than last years Dodgers.

Pedro Martinez....$17.5 million
Curt Schilling...$12 million (and a $2 million bonus)
Never hearing a Yankee fan chant 1918 again...priceless. [/size]
