New York Magazine caught up with former-Met Mike Piazza at the 24th Annual Great Sports Legends dinner in New York.
Here’s a little sampling…
They [the editors] wanted to know if you think the Mets are the unluckiest team in baseball.
No. I don't believe in luck. No. Look, we had a lot of frustrations when I was there. That's just the unfortunate thing of playing for the Mets. The highs are extremely high, and the lows are really low. It's really like a roller coaster. There's really not a lot of middle ground with them.
Piazza's wife interjects: The Chicago Cubs are the unluckiest team in baseball.
Yeah, yeah, yeah. Exactly! The Mets have won two World Series. There's no question. Things will get better.
Were you embarrassed by the Mets' performance this season?
No, no, no. We always root for them.
We miss you, Mike.
