Boston Globe: Cafardo: Catching up with Piazza

It had to be asked…(no, not that).

You know what I’m going to ask. You and Roger Clemens. Hitting you in the head in 2000. Throwing the splintered bat at you in Game 2 of the 2000 World Series. Did you guys ever patch that up?

MP: “We’re just different people, I guess. I don’t carry a resentment or anything like that. Someone made a comment to me the other day in Canada that, ‘With all your accomplishments, you’re going to be remembered for that.’ Are you that shallow that you only remember me for that? If that’s true, then you’re too stupid and I can’t help you. I don’t look back in any sort of regret. He’s who he is, I am who I am, we’re two different people, but we’re both very competitive and strong-willed. He does his own thing and he’s had a very successful career. I’m sure we can coexist in the future in some way, shape, or form.”

Piazza's more likely to be remembered for not being gay.

The general level of suckitude that is Cafardo's Boston Globe Sunday Baseball Notes would never be allowed to see print if Peter Gammons was still alive.

On a par with Phil Pepe taking over dead Dick Young's "Clubhouse Confidential"...and constantly writing about the next Italo-American golf outing in Brooklyn.

Is there a beat writer who knows less about baseball than Nick Cafardo? Whatever the last scout he spoke to said becomes the theme of his piece that day - even if it completely contradicts what the next-to-last scout said the previous day. Isn't he supposed to be out in Foxboro covering Pats camp by this point in the calendar year?

I like this quote.

I like post #4, but it would read a whole lot better like so...

Apropos of nothing: 1) Is there a beat writer who knows less about baseball than Nick Cafardo? 2)It's just a feeling, but I bet Ichiro challenges for the HR crown next year. A scout I talked to said he was entering the "Wade Boggs late career stage". 3) When in Des Moines, be sure to check out the Corn Dog Carnival held every August.

RE #4: Have Nick Cafardo and Larry King ever been seen in the same place at the same time?
