I would imagine that more than a few Yankees fans may be wondering if the Yankees should make a run at Free Agent Mike Piazza – given the recent news on Jorge Posada.
I’ll just offer two facts on the thought. Piazza is 39-years old and has not caught a baseball game in the last 574 days.
Given these facts, I’d rather see the Yankees sign Smoky Burgess as a stop-gap measure to address the Posada issue. And, Burgess passed away in 1991. Smoky would offer the same value as Piazza and cost the team a lot less in terms of room and board.
