Publishers Weekly announced yesterday that Simon and Schuster would be publishing Mike Piazza’s autobiography. Didn’t take long for sportswriters and pundits to weigh in on the project.
The PW piece mentioned the “controversies” — Piazza’s relationship with the LA Dodgers, confrontation with Roger Clemens, hints of his sexuality — that would be a major component of the book. Deadpsin, for example, went the usual high-brow route and aimed for the genitals, while the LA Times also focuses on the homosexual bullet point. By the way, I wonder, of all the pictures they could have used, why the photo editors picked one that seems out of focus. Is that a “comment” on the fuzziness of the “accusations?”
