Mets changing Spring Training address to honor Mike Piazza for some reason

OK this is weird.

The Mets have announced a media event for Thursday in which “The New York Mets, the City of Port St. Lucie, St. Lucie County and Mets legend Mike Piazza will be on hand for a major announcement regarding an address change and street naming. ”

This comes to Mets Police in a Media Advisory titled

METS TO HONOR MIKE PIAZZA WITH SPRING TRAINING ADDRESS CHANGE

So, one can only assume that Whatever Its Called Thus Year Stadium will have a Street Address of like 31 Mike Piazza Way or something.

That’s nice…bu let me ask a really difficult unpopular question…..

is Mike deserving of such an honor?  I know we like to pretend he wasn’t on the Dodgers and all, but is he deserving of a The Franchise like honor?  Seems a little soon.

Do you associate PSL with Mike Piazza?

I don’t hate it, but my initial reaction wasn’t Yeah!!!  OTOH all of a sudden the Mets are super into their history, so that’s good.

When Mike reads my take he will probably be like this…
