I'm no Mike Piazza apologist, but I'm not ready to throw dirt on him, either. He's old and fragile, and he ain't what he used to be, but he was on his way to his best season since 2002 a year ago before smashing up his thumb in August. I'd like to see him buck the declining average trend - his batting average has gone down in each of the past five seasons - but he can still swing with the best of them. Still, Petco Park is going to take a bite out of his power numbers. Plus, he's going to look ridiculous in a camouflage Padres uniform, even more ridiculous than he did with the Italian flag superimposed on his face in that World Baseball Classic spot. On the whole, San Diego's jerseys are the worst in the bigs, hands down.
