This is a huge
bummer; Coleman was one of the all-time greats. We're going to be losing more of them, soon: Vin Scully doesn't have much time left, nor do Ralph Kiner or Milo Hamilton.
I will be devastated when Ralph Kiner dies. He has been part of my baseball life since I can remember, I remember watching him on WWOR as a kid. His Kiner's Corner was the best show on television.
Being a Mets fan, I can't claim to be objective but I really do try. Mike Piazza should be in the hall of fame. His offensive numbers demands he should be there. He also wasn't as much of a liability behind the plate as people make him out to be. He is on average with most catchers in that aspect. However if the voters feel he needs another year or two before he gets in, I'm okay with that. While I don't BELIEVE he did steroids, he flat out denies it in his book. Even if he did, I don't care. I don't care if any baseball player used steroids, let them all I say.
