FLB Chat Wrap: July 27

Tristan H. Cockcroft: Good morning everyone! Let's get right to your questions...

Harold (NY): Where would u rank Piazza for Catchers?

Tristan H. Cockcroft: Most people know I haven't been the biggest Mike Piazza backer in recent seasons, mainly because he has been a terrible second-half player for several seasons now. I still think there's a chance he'll wear down, and considering he's ranked 10th among catchers on the Player Rater, I wouldn't expect him to be any better than that looking forward. In fact, I think he could slip maybe five spots or so talking today's game through season's end.
