Retire 31

by 2 August 29, 2013 0 Comments

  The Mets are inducting Piazza to their Hall Of Fame on September 29th before the last final game of the season. He will be the 27th member. While this is great news, it doesn't mean his number 31 will be retired. Since Piazza left after the 2005 season no one has donned the number. Not saying other greats don't deserve the recognition, but since they're already honoring him and have never issued the number since his departure, why not make it official? When Piazza launched a pair meaningless home runs at this years celebrity softball ASG you could tell that the fans, at least the ones around me, love Mike Piazza. Close this rough season on a positive note and give Mike's fans what they want. Make him one of the elite, forever. Doesn't it look good out there on the wall? We think so. Mets, RETIRE 31! (yes, this is photoshopped) UPDATE: A tweet from the man himself about this blog post! Wow. MIND OFFICIALLY BLOWN!
