Q&ACast, pres. by Verizon: John Franco talks about Mike Piazza

Matthew Cerrone, Lead Writer

In this week’s MetsBlog Q&Acast, pres. by Verizon, I talk with with former Mets captain John Franco about his time playing with Mike Piazza, who will be inducted in to the team’s Hall of Fame this Sunday at Citi Field.

Franco talks about his decision to give up number 31 to Piazza, the impact Mike had on the clubhouse upon his arrival, as well as Piazza’s skills behind the plate. Naturally, we talk a bit about Mariano Rivera, who Franco agrees is the greatest closer of all time.
