      To this day I don't understand how the greatest hitting catcher ever could be be unheralded coming out of high school and college? I find it almost impossible to believe that Piazza didn't show at least some promise in high school and especially college. Didn't Ted Williams coach Piazza for a short time and say that he thought Pizza could hit 25 HR a year in the majors?

            well I would not write him off yet. of course he is not as good as his first 2 months were but he did actually hit well in the minors for years and maybe just has a tough time because the pitchers adjust to him.

            I don't know if he will become an everyday player but I could see him become a consistenst 110-120 OPS+ player if he adjusts.
            I now have my own non commercial blog about training for batspeed and power using my training experience in baseball and track and field.
