It's a Met. He played 8 years with the Mets as opposed to 6 with the Dodgers. Yeah, he was a little bit more statistically impressive with the Dodgers but was still AWESOME with the Mets. He also led the Mets to a WS appearance. He himself said he'd like to in as a Met, I think it's the Mets. Im biased, I admit, Id be incredibly upset if he didnt go in as one, btu I think it makes more sense.

as a dodger fan i wouldn't be crying in my sleep if his plaque had a mets logo , but i would want him to give his speech in a dodger hat, maybe some of you mets fans feel the same way?
i mean mets fans would you ever had gotten the chance to watch him and love him had Tommy Lassorda not made the dodgers draft him? i don't think it's all that bad if he goes in as a dodger just because of that.
Met hat and Dodger plaque.
He became a name as a Dodger and should go in as one. His best years were also as a Dodger.
Toronto Blue Jays
San Francisco 49's
He was great as a Dodger, but he became a legend with the Mets.
"You don't know how to drink. Your whole generation, you drink for the wrong reasons. My generation, we drink because it's good, because it feels better than unbuttoning your collar, because we deserve it. We drink because it's what men do."
He should with the dodgers, thats where he really made his name, its jsut that everyone remebers the more recent stint with the mets. But he absolutely raked with the dodgers, also did very well with the mets.
If you look more indepthly at the stats tho piazza has 4 good years to his standards in la but really only 4 good years before he started taling off. tho hi OBP always stayed pretty high.
Its kind of like kevin garnett choosing who he is going to go in with. Timberwolves were his golden years, but kg won a championship with the celtics and piazza went to the ws with the mets.
Piazza played for the Dodgers? Really?
Dodgers!.....had Fox not bought the Dodgers this isnt even a discussion
Piazza might be one of the few players the HoF lets name his preference.
