At this point in his career, Piazza is unlikely to start more than 70 games at catcher. But, it's still a good move for the Pads after the loss of Ramon Hernandez. When I heard that S.D. and Philly were the top two finalists for Mike this week, I thought he'd be a better fit for his hometown team backing up the injury-plagued Lieberthal. Nonetheless, he'll still be an asset in San Diego.
