Congratulations to the Hall of Famers, though Dodger fans would preferred to see Mike Piazza go in as a Dodger.

Lucy, I don't know. His Dodger days are before my time of watching baseball. I don't even know where he had his best playing years. I don't even know if he was traded or left willingly. What I do know is that he was drafted in the umpteenth round by Tommy Lasorda as a favor to a friend. You never know who is going to turn out good.


The Dodgers have hired a Japanese pitcher. He has an ERA of something like 2.07 in Japan.

Piazza was drafted by the Dodgers in the 1988 MLB Draft as a favor from Tommy Lasorda to Piazza's father. Initially a first baseman, Piazza converted to catcher in the minor leagues at Lasorda's suggestion to improve his chances of being promoted. He made his major league debut in 1992 and the following year was named the National League (NL) Rookie of the Year and was an All-Star for the first of ten consecutive seasons. Piazza immediately impressed with his ability to hit for power and average. His best year as a Dodger came in 1997 when he batted .362, hit 40 home runs, and had 124 runs batted in (RBIs), leading to a runner-up finish in voting for the NL Most Valuable Player Award. In 1998, he was traded to the Marlins and then a week later to the Mets, with whom he spent most of the remainder of his career. He helped the Mets reach the 2000 World Series, the only World Series appearance of his career. After the 2005 season, Piazza left the Mets to play one season each for the Padres and Athletics before retiring after the 2007 season.

Piazza is regarded as one of the best offensive catchers in baseball history. He had at least one RBI in 15 consecutive games for the Mets in 2000, the second-longest RBI streak ever. In 2013, the Mets inducted Piazza into the New York Mets Hall of Fame. In 2016, Piazza was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame, receiving 83% of the vote.[1]

Since Boston is in the American league, I don't pay much attention to the NL. I really don't watch much baseball any more & during the All Star game realized that I don't know many of the players any more.

As to the Red Sox, David Ortiz is retiring after next year.

The Astros won! Hurray! Hurray! 5-3. They let Kuechel pitch for 7 innings, which seemed a bit excessive for his first time out, but he did pretty well, so what do I know? Shrug! Smiling

The Astros won on Tuesday and lost (badly!) yesterday. They have one more game with the Yankees today before going to Milwaukee to play the Brewers.
