There is an article on espn.com today saying that the Phillies are interesting in signing Mikey and have had preliminary discussions with his agents. http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/news/story?id=2304496
While I love Mike and what he did for the Mets during his tenure in New York, and I want only the best for him because he is a great player and a great guy, it would hurt me to see him in a Phillies uniform playing against the Mets 20 times a year. Also, I don't think it's the right situation for him because I think he can be a very productive DH in the AL for several years down the road (even though he still wants to catch). His body will hold up longer and he will be able to produce at a pretty high level for at least 3-4 more years. The article also mentioned the possibility of Piazza going to the Yankees, which might hurt even more than the Phils.
I want all the best for Piazza for the rest of his career, but I would prefer to see him thrive in the AL than continue to struggle in the NL (not to mention, potentially hurt the Mets 20 times a year). I'm pretty sure I'm not alone here. Thoughts?
