Dodgers | Mike Piazza blames Vin Scully for feud

Fri, 15 Feb 2013 07:36:00 -0800

Former C Mike Piazza blamed Los Angeles Dodgers broadcaster Vin Scully for Piazza's estrangement from the organization in his autobiography. "The way the whole contract drama looked to them -many of whom were taking their cue from Scully - was that, by setting a deadline and insisting on so much money, I was demonstrating a conspicuous lack of loyalty to the ballclub," Piazza wrote in the book. "I understood that." Scully denied the accusations. Piazza hasn't been in Dodger Stadium since his career ended in 2007.
