That, however, can no longer be said as Piazza received a robust 83% of votes in his 4th go-around and has finally earned his place among Baseball's elite.
And I get to thinking about Piazza's career and specifically his time with the Mets, and I've probably written more than my share waxing poetic about those years and those great Piazza moments because they're so easy to remember, and that's what made him great. Ask 10 different Mets fans what their favorite Mike Piazza memory is and you might get 10 different answers.
And so I guess what I'm trying to say is that I can't write anything further that hasn't already been said about Mike. Perhaps the ultimate Badass in Mets History, I think what really needs to be done is for you to watch this series of videos I've shot over the years. When you've been long retired and past your prime and people still tear down the house when you show up, you were probably pretty good.
