    i think the way people remember him depends on where they grew up, or when they started watching baseball.

    typically the committee in these situations tend to use the team that has less representation (the mets currently have 1 player in the hall) so it will probably be NY and given how vocal he has been over his desire to go in as a met it will most likely be the mets

    that being said even if he went in as a dodger it doesnt change what he did the mets and new york during his tenure here and his number should be retired this year, ownership clearly views him on the level of seaver (just look at their appearances and coupling them together)

    It's gotta be the Mets. He meant so much to that organization and its fans.

    HoF will ask the player if he has a preference. If the HOF's opinion is split, Piazza's preference could be the deciding factor.
    "The 90 wins is about challenge. It's about changing the conversation. It's about framing questions for ourselves as to how we get there. So I stand by the notion that we need to get better, and in doing so we need to set concrete goals for ourselves so that we have sort of specific conversations among ourselves about how we're going to get there." -- Mr. Alderson

    Mets, I think he meant more to that organization than he did to the Dodgers.

    He had some big moments in his 5 games there.
    I actually saw one of those games live

    It's a reasonable discussion.
    It's got to come down to more than this... Come on Jeffy. Display a bit of heart here.

    As an unapologetic Mets hating New Yorker, the post 9/11 homer was a moment that was bigger than the game itself. Couple that with the fact that Piazza's Mets played more meaningful late season games and playoff games than Piazza's Dodgers...

    His most meaningful and memorable baseball was played as a Met. He should be remembered as such.

    Just a snap-shot view of the production. Of course, he displayed almost a full decade with each organization, there is more to it then.

    Boston Red Sox: 46-52, games this week vs. Blue Jays (4), Rays (3)
    Indianapolis Colts: Good draft and off-season so far.
    Looking for new NBA team to cheer for
    Ottawa Senators: 37-31-14, season over, free agency begins this week.
