Skip to comments.Dodgers: Mike Piazza calls out Vin Scully in book
Posted on 02/13/2013 2:29:47 PM PST by ColdOne
Piazza did himself no favors on that score in his new book, "Long Shot." In the book, he blames iconic Dodgers broadcaster Vin Scully for turning fans against him during the contract stalemate that preceded his trade to the Florida Marlins in 1998.

This is crazy. Piazza is loco.
Talking trash about Scully is not a good thing.
Hmmmm, many libtards of those days were saying the same. The mantra being no ballplayer worth that kind of money.
After the signing, it was revealed that revenue from jersey sales with Mike's name on it had generated approximately 100 million dollars revenue. Of course the players do NOT share directly from those profits. Never heard much from the libtards after that.
I love Vin Scully. Born and bred listening to him. If he had a strong opinion on a subject matter, you knew what it is was if you listened regularly and between the lines.
and he did share an opinion on Mike's stance. He shared both sides, but everyone knew where Vin stood on this matter.
Piazza is a liar. His baseball talent was built on steroids. Before going on the roid, he wasn’t even a good college player, evidenced by his lousy college career. He was picked in the charity case rounds because his dad was best friends with Tommy Lasorda. A friend of mine who played and worked in the Mets organization said the worst sight in MLB was Mike Piazza’s back, from the out of control acne on his back, a tell tale sign of steroid abuse. A good rule of thumb in detecting the roid head in baseball is his swing. The no stride short upper body swing is a steroid swing, like Piazza, Bagwell, etc. The swing with a stride and full extension is the way you hit if you are not juiced, like Griffey Jr.
I really don’t see Vin Scully as being someone who lead or even helped form opinion on Mike Piazza’s contract talks with Fox at the time.
