Interesting that they're trying to make a catcher of a corner infielder from Miami-Dade. Mike Piazza played first base for Miami-Dade when he was drafted. They brought him to Dodger Stadium, had him squat behind the plate and throw a few to second, declared him a catcher--actually, Lasorda
declared him a catcher--and made him an offer.
