PLAYERS: Mike Piazza
TEAMS: New York Mets
If you’re going to have somebody be stupid and vote for Sele and not Piazza then just give me a vote. I could be just as stupid. — Metstradamus (@Metstradamus) January 9, 2013 The fact that Mike Piazza is not a Hall of Famer is an utter joke. #HOF — Kevin Burkhardt (@KBurkhardtSNY) January 9, 2013 Piazza. #NotThisYearBoss — Mets WFAN (@MetsWFAN) January 9, 2013 Mr. Piazza, using this TV remote control, please demonstrate for the court what the BBWAA did to you. #Mets twitter.com/ReadTheApple/s… — Randy Medina (@ReadTheApple) January 9, 2013 Sources tell me PIazza’s play at first base hurt his candidacy. #HOF #Mets — Bill Price (@TheBitterBill) January 9, 2013 Haven’t tweet at all after Piazza got snubbed. Not surprised about it at all but definitely still disappointed. Hopefully next year. — The 7 Line (@The7Line) January 9, 2013 And once again the #Mets fans get screwed RT @adamrubinespn: Mike Piazza gets 57.8 percent of vote — ed marcus (@lagranderusty) January 9, 2013 Somewhere sitting in his cliff side mansion, blasting some Metallica with his Playboy model wife, I’m sure Piazza is devastated. — E.J. (@TheHappyRecap) January 9, 2013 I’m with the crowd. @mets should put Piazza in their Hall.But don’t invite anyone from @officialbbwaa — metspolice (@metspolice) January 9, 2013 It’s on you now @mets, don’t let the baseball writers take away what should be a summer of celebrating Mike Piazza. #retire31 — Michael Donato (@Ceetar) January 9, 2013 BBWAA to Piazza, Bonds, etc.: “Go to your rooms and think about what you’ve done!” When did they become MLB’s parents? — Matthew Cerrone (@matthewcerrone) January 9, 2013 42.2% of the Hall of Fame voters either (a) think Mike Piazza took steroids; or (b) are blithering idiots. — Craig Calcaterra (@craigcalcaterra) January 9, 2013 what pisses me off more than Piazza didn’t make HOF is the attitude of the smug assholes of #BBWAA proud of themselves no one got in — Stephen Keane (@kranepool) January 9, 2013 Piazza will get in. Eventually. #mets — Andrew Vazzano (@TheRopolitans) January 9, 2013 The post A Stache of Tweets: Reaction To Piazza Not Getting Into Hall Of Fame appeared first on The Daily Stache.

Piazza Denied: BBWAA Should Be Ashamed

As everyone knows by now, there will be no players inducted into the Baseball Hall Of Fame this summer. That is a tragedy.

Morons like Murray Chass, who claim Piazza did use roids or other Performance Enhancing Drugs because of back acne, are absurd...

Mike Piazza and the HOF. Today is the day

Its kind of funny that right now all the chatter is about will  Mike make the HOF leap today or be lumped with all the other steriod players and have to wait another  year.  Later today after the annoucement at 2pm the talk hopefully turns into what Hat will Mike wear when he is inducted later this summer.  The guy deserves to be a 1st ballott HOF.  Best of luck to the Former...

My 2013 IBWAA Hall Of Fame Election Vote

Will the Wilpons thumb their nose at Selig over Mike Piazza?

Major League Baseball officially announced their choices for the Hall of Fame. Well, actually, they didn’t announce anyone this year. The big controversy is that baseball writers did not elect a single player for baseball’s highest honor. While I understand the dilemma they faced with names like Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens, there are others who were equally worthy that were...
