Piazza for Guillen? Eeek.

Guillen, 2004: .294/.352/.497, 27 HR
Guillen, 2005: 29 y.o., $3 million

Piazza, 2004: .266/.362/.444, 20 HR
Piazza, 2005: 36 y.o., $15 million

Does Piazza have a year's worth of DHing in him? Almost certainly. I mean, look at the Angels' production from that spot last year:

ANA DH 2004: .240/.323/.401, 21 HR

But the Mets would have to eat a LOT of salary to make this work. As in, $10 million.
