30 Day Baseball Card Challenge: Day 16

"A card of a player whom you appreciate but don’t like." This was a hard one to figure out initially. Usually if I don't like a player I don't appreciate them either. Then I thought about teams I don't like and it became easier. As a Yankee fan I certainly dislike the Mets. As a result I was always inclined to dislike Mike Piazza. (I never really had an opinion about him when he was with LA.) He always seemed whiny and annoying. Still, in regular season Subway Series and the World Series, he was definitely the one Met you hoped didn't come up to bat in a big situation, because he was such a dangerous hitter.

I may not appreciate Mike Piazza, but I sure do like this card!
