Mike Piazza8217s Greatness

Mike Piazza didnt cro s the 75% threshold nece sary for election into the Baseball Hall of Fame. Still, at 62.2% in the second year around the ballot, hes probably close enough that his election is eventually a sured. And thats good, while he was Air Jordan 6"Slam Dunk" the best offensive catcher in baseball history.
His greatne s is both old- and new-school. To wit, listed here are his rankings in certain of the key offensive stats of both genres, all-time, among catchers:Home Runs: 1stRBI: 4thBatting Average: 9thOn-Base Percentage: 13thWeighted Runs Created Plus: 1stOffensive Runs: 1stNumber of 35+ HR seasons:six, first (Johnny Bench had two, called the only other catcher with multiple 35+ homer seasons.)Number of 100+ RBI seasons:six, first (Tied with Johnny Bench.)Number of 140+ wRC+ seasons:six, first (Johnny Bench second with four.)
Looks like Johnny Bench is his No. 1 contender for that title of best offensive catcher of all-time. Though Piazza played about a season-and-a-half le s, he managed more home runs and the weighted offense was better. wRC+ will a congrats leveling the playing fields between different eras. Still, its fun to place both of these greats up against each other with their rate stats adjusted against the players of time.
BB%+K%+ISO+Mike Piazza11187151Johnny Bench121108173Bench might have had more patience and power regarding his time, but he gave back a large amount of this by striking out greater than his peers. Its easy to see this and opt for Bench, but the ability to make contact leads to Air Jordan 5 Low ‘Chinese New Year’ those gaudy batting average and RBI stats which make Piazzas case.
The biggest part of Piazzas greatne s was this capability to make contact while hitting for power. Its something might have heard with respect to Frank Thomas, whose strikeout rate was mere decimals better than Piazzas. Both were within an elite cla s for their time. Observe that were beginning to leave his position behind. Heres the list of players who stepped to the plate at least 3,000 times after 1990 and showed a remote slugging percentage above .220, Air Jordan 13"Cement Grey" along with a strikeout rate under 15%. Basically, the decades best hitters.

His homer within the post-9/11 game gives many New Yorkers chills to this day. He would be a heavy-metal-loving, Playboy-bunny-marrying dude with great hair; the fame part isnt a problem.
Despite back-acne-related suspicions, hes never been officially tied to steroid use. In his book, he flatly denied using. His aging curve certainly doesnt po se s the eye-popping right tail of some of the users among the Air Jordan 6"Spizike" popular consensus he peaked at 29 and was merely average after he turned 35. Ironically, the catcher admitted, one of the steroid denials, towards the use of amphetamines and anti-inflammatory drugs. Those admi Air Jordan 13"CP3" sions, as well as his strikeout rate, almost lead him to a throw-back to another era. Perhaps he should be judged against the greenie-popping players of the 70s, then. (Hed be a lot more of a shoo-in Hall-of-Famer.)
Some point to his power from nowhere, as Jeff Pearlman quoted an anonymous major leaguer as telling him in the book The Rocket That Fell to Earth. But thats overstating the case. Dan Lewis at AmazinAvenue returned through two scouting reports filed by the same scout on Matt Merrullo and Mike Piazza that suggested that Piazza was at least a 10th-rounder to him. That trained eye put a 6 on his future power grade and lauded his excellent body. The scout also felt Piazza was worth a variety on bat and power. And as soon as Piazza hit the minor leagues, he showed power. He bested his Low-A leagues average isolated power by 100 points Air Jordan 4 Retro Premium"Black Leather" after which hit 29 homers in High-A at 22. Power from nowhere?
Concerns about his defense are legitimate for the reason that his defense wasnt just like his offense. However the proven fact that he made it to 36 prior to being inspired to log greater than an inning per season initially base all while putting up numbers that will make him useful initially suggests teams built the same decisions as the numbers on the leaderboards. He was good enough to provide more value behind home plate than he'd have at first base.
And maybe all of this will soon be history. Judging from these four BBWAA voters, hell be gaining steam weight lo s players enter and make some room behind end from the ballot. Based on Jay Jaffe, no player has cracked 50% without having to be elected apart from the unfortunate Gil Hodges (Jack Morris may yet allow it to be as a Veteran Committee selection). Obviously, the 10-player limit never seemed as big of the deal before, either.
But Mike Piazza? Surely hes a Hall-of-Famer. His greatne s is appropriate there in the numbers. Offensive numbers, maybe, however Air Jordan 7"Bordeaux" the Hall just elected Frank Thomas po sibly the worst defensive first baseman of all-time. Piazzas bat would have played anywhere in the end, not one other catcher has lead the entire league in offense as Mike Piazza did in 1997.
