But the guy who just published an $800,000 book, isn’t doing interviews.
“It shouldn’t be assumed that every big hitter of the generation used steroids,” Piazza says in the book. “I didn’t.”
Had Piazza agreed to an interview this week, I would love to have had the opportunity to ask him about his back and the timing and disappearance of his acne. But the guy who just published an $800,000 book, isn’t doing interviews.
If you want to ignore the acne and make excuses for it and invent reasons for its sudden disappearance

It would be entertaining if Piazza sued Chass for defamation of character.
It would be entertaining if Piazza sued Chass for defamation of character...could probably sue for millions as he is the only writer pressing the backne story and I'd bet it is a large part of what will keep Piazza out of the HOF for a few more years.

He asked the guy why, given that Ben Johnson got nailed for cheating, the other competitors themselves didn't make a bigger stink about it. He was told that they didn't want to draw any extra attention, as the only guy who was running clean in that race finished last.
I don't know how true it was but, given what you've already noted about the other guys who have been caught, it seems like a reasonable story.
#27 Professional cycling hasn't become less popular with the fans.
It hasn't? I honestly don't know a single person who still pays attention to cycling.
More seriously, what would interviews do? I haven't read the book but I imagine the answers Piazza would give to any questions are in the book. Chass and others may not like the answers but he does address the issues. A NY Times review includes this;
He's crossed the line from clown to scumbag.
