Mike Piazza & New Stadium

Maybe Piazza can be the Marlins version of Tony Bosselli -- go out there, hit the pavement and bring people to the seats... and if there was a place for Piazza in the Front Office, I'm all for bringing him on board

 

 

Me too I am surprised he is not on TV or something......he is still a name people recognize and will flock too.

Maybe he just wants to watch baseball in his town in a proper stadium.

 

 

Back in 1998, Piazza's Dad, Tony Piazza I believe, wanted to buy parts of the Marlins along with a group-but was turned down for some reason (I think it was the fact Mike Piazza was a Dodgers and it conflicted, or the fact that he withdrew after Piazza was traded).

 

Mike has been here since his college days at UM and MDCC-hopefully he can buy into or be a part of the front office in some role.

Is Piazza a Marlins Fan?

 

 

From what I've seen, yes and no. He always wants them to do well, but I think he's a Mets fan now. I believe he hasn't stepped foot in dodger stadium since the trade other to play a game.

 

I've never seen a bad thing he's said about the marlins.

 

Think anyone can help me find pictures of Piazza in college at UM or MDC? I'd love to get a authentic jersey made to go with my growing Piazza collection.

Damn man, you really like Piazza a lot. I'm sure you have an insane collection of stuff.

Nah, just jerseys I've aquired recently, a baseball autographed, 13 of his rookies, 50 of his cards as a marlin and about 2000 of other baseball cards.

 

Actually this is my stuff as of a few month ago-- since then I've gained 10 marlins cards and 6 piazza jerseys. Both Dodgers (1997 JR PATCH), 3 more mets (9-11, WS, Regular), 1 home marlins and 2 padres jerseys (need to get the names added though). One of those bobble heads is a Marlins one, from 1998.)

Wait, there was a Marlins Piazza bobblehead? Or am I misunderstanding you?

 

 

No you understood fine. It's a Headliner XXL Bobblehead like toy from 1998. They made a Dodgers, he got traded and they made a Marlins, and he was traded again and they made a Mets.

I would assume that he would attempt to purchase a part of the Mets.

 

Not anytime soon.

 

Wilpon sold 33% to David Einhorn for $200 million. Einhorn has the right to buy another 27% three years from now for $1 if the Mutts can't buy him back out for $200 million, which ain't gonna happen.

 

The Wilpon group is done, they face up to a billion in liability in the Madoff trustee's suits. Never mind that the Mutts are losing about $70 million this year according to Wilpon. And never mind that parts of the Wilpon commercial real estate holdings are sucking foreclosure canal water.

 

The Mutts, having about $500 million in debt are problematic. That and the Madoff problem is why Wilpon took the Einhorn deal to raise cash. It's called desperation.

 

A new post-Wilpon version of the Mutts will emerge, a la the Rangers under Nolan Ryan. Only then would small fish like Piazza possibly be interested in any ownership stake.

 

Which doesn't mean any new owner would sell him any.
