Note: The Dodger Thoughts blog has moved to the Los Angeles Times.

Doing worse than any Dodger batter: Mike Piazza.

Piazza is 5 for 34 this season with three walks, no extra-base hits and no RBI. His OPS is .363. And that's with a 2-for-7 hot streak in his past two games. Following his season-opening suspension, Piazza was Motavated to start the season 2 for 27.

The New York Times has an informative feature today on Piazza's struggles, and Mike Lupica of the New York Daily News writes about him as well, asking the Mets the same question that Dodger fans with good memories may recall from early 1998: "Can they still expect to ever build a championship team around Piazza?"
