Piazza discovers his problem

Postby Rirruto » Mon Aug 09, 2004 10:46 am

After watching video of his swing from past years, Mike Piazza believes he has mechanical problems which may have stemmed from wrist and knee injuries.
''I told [manager Art Howe]: 'I'll do whatever you want me to do,' but it's obvious I need some time to heal and also get myself right with the bat,'' Piazza said. Howe gave Piazza the last two games off, hoping that, with today's off day, three days would help him rest and right himself.

yea they say hes opening up too early or... anyways, its pretty wierd how he hits better as a catcher rather than a 1B.
[size=10]Manny Ramirez....$20 million
Pedro Martinez....$17.5 million
Curt Schilling...$12 million (and a $2 million bonus)
Never hearing a Yankee fan chant 1918 again...priceless. [/size]

Yeah, that was before his huge slump though. Now he sucks wherever he plays. Hopefully he can get it straightened out though

I traded for him a couple of days ago (LoDuca and Mussina for Piazza....I don't need Mussina at all), so after reading this today I was very happy. Hopefully he'll get it corrected soon and go back to being the top fantasy catcher.
