The Dodgers' uncomfortable winter could take a bitter turn Wednesday, when the best hitter the team has developed since moving to Los Angeles could be elected to the Hall of Fame and promptly remind the world he wants to be immortalized in the cap of the New York Mets.
The breaking news would be the election of Mike Piazza, not his selection of cap. He has made his preference clear for years, most bitingly in his 2013 autobiography.
"If the Hall came to me and said, 'We want you to go in as a Dodger,' I'd say, 'Well, then I'll go in as nothing,'" Piazza wrote. "I just wouldn't feel comfortable with LA stamped on my head for all of eternity."
