Piazza has officially appealed the suspension and reports are that the hearing will be delayed until after the season starts ... so Mike will be in the lineup on Opening Day!
I'm amazed that he got 5 games while Vlad only got 3 for charging Penny ... at least Mota threw at Piazza so head a good reason to charge, Penny seemingly hit Vlad accidentally and just pissed him off.
You know Piazza hasn't forgotten about that. It will be intresting to see if at somepoint this year the Piazza can get some revenge. Intresting to see what Mota would do if he ever got a single and Piazza was playing 1st maybe just run the other way?
There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.
