O's have interest in Piazza

The New York Daily News is reporting that the Orioles are one of 3 teams that has come in contact with Mike Piazza, and ESPNews is reporting that the Orioles are one of 5 teams interested in him. Here are a few interesting excerpts from the NY Daily News article.

"I asked (Samuels) about Piazza," Beltran said. "He told me he was close to signing with a team in the American League."
The Blue Jays, Orioles and Yankees are AL teams confirmed to have spoken with Piazza's agent, Dan Lozano.

Another one...

Sources told the Daily News on Monday that the Yankees had received a call from Lozano and told the agent the catcher was not a good fit.

Good news for O's fans who want Piazza.

Mike Piazza told friends from the Shea Stadium clubhouse that he was nearing a deal with a team in the American League, but as the Daily News reported yesterday, it almost certainly won't be the Yankees.

I like this move if he only catches roughly 10% of the time, DH's, stays healthy, and Javy gets traded.

Go O's!
