Mike Piazza’s wife: Mike thinks Roger Clemens’ bat attack in the 2000 World Series was steroid-fueled

Jul 19, 2012, 2:22 PM EDT

Here’s a shorter version of the below video of Mike Piazza and his wife:

Rocco: Michael says if you can’t take care of this, I have to.

Fredo: I think you’d better.

I’m sure the conversation they had once they got home was lovely.

Yes, this is TMZ stuff. But it’s fun TMZ stuff.  And the lesson, as always: never valet park. It just leaves you sitting there like a yutz so the paparazzi can bother you.

    Clemens never threw a bat at Piazza. 8)

    I remember that like it was yesterday.

    Gotta wonder if his wife knew they (Piazza & Clemens) went golfing together last year.

    • aceshigh11 - Jul 19, 2012 at 4:20 PM

      They were in a celebrity golf tournament and did some radio together.

      Let’s not pretend they went golfing as old friends.

    Not like the initial hit by Piazza was ‘roid fueled or anything…

      Do you have proof of that? Because if so you could become pretty famous and possibly a little rich

      Murray Chass, is that you??

  5. psuravens19 - Jul 19, 2012 at 2:45 PM

    Of course it was fueled by roid rage… how else can you explain it?

    • 1943mrmojorisin1971 - Jul 19, 2012 at 3:09 PM

      Everything Clemens did was roid-fueled as far as most people are concerned. That’s open for debate but, you’re right, this one incident really isn’t.

  6. number42is1 - Jul 19, 2012 at 2:45 PM

    Thought he was gay?

    • hammyofdoom - Jul 19, 2012 at 5:30 PM

      For those people thumbing him down its a lyric to a song and actually a LOT of people believe that haha

  7. poprox13 - Jul 19, 2012 at 2:50 PM

    And so does most everyone else

  8. 1943mrmojorisin1971 - Jul 19, 2012 at 3:07 PM

    Man, Piazza is just all class. Can’t say the same for his wife here.

    • willsolo - Jul 19, 2012 at 6:31 PM

      Seriously. Piazza could have shit on Clemens here but he didn’t. His wife was so easily baited and then tried to throw him under the bus too.

  9. WhenMattStairsIsKing - Jul 19, 2012 at 3:09 PM

    I always thought it was because Roger was an egotistical prick.

  10. stevem7 - Jul 19, 2012 at 3:15 PM

    I’m just amazed that the Federal Prosecutor didn’t rush Mrs. Piazza down to DC to testify. After all, one more know nothing testifing that her opinion is ‘FACT’ in that trial was needed. Nobody cares what she or her husband THINK … try some proveable facts.

    Who speaks the truth more than a Playboy Playmate?

    • daweadilx - Jul 19, 2012 at 4:56 PM

      now that you mention it…..brb google.

  12. aceshigh11 - Jul 19, 2012 at 4:19 PM

    It sure looked like a case of steroid-fueled psychosis.

    Clemens hurled that shard at Piazza like Ahab tossing a harpoon at the white whale.

    (yes, I’m kidding)

  13. raybrower - Jul 19, 2012 at 4:21 PM

    Pffft…nice viral marketing Calcaterra. Next you’re going to tell us that “Magic Mike” Piazza’s HR record for catchers won’t be broken until the next “Ice Age”.

  14. bbk1000 - Jul 19, 2012 at 4:31 PM

    She must have been tanked….

  15. The Dangerous Mabry - Jul 19, 2012 at 4:41 PM

    Why in the world would it have anything to do with steroids? As Chris Rock put it, what ever happened to Crazy? Clemens can’t just be a nut? It has to be due to drugs?

    I’m not saying he didn’t use steroids, but let’s not excuse his behavior as a side effect of a drug.

  16. mybrunoblog - Jul 19, 2012 at 4:57 PM

    Is Piazza’s wife named Frank and does she have an Adams apple and beard? Just asking.

  17. Walk - Jul 19, 2012 at 8:09 PM

    I am willing to believe her as i have little to no interaction with people that have experienced roid rage.

  18. braddavery - Jul 19, 2012 at 8:15 PM

    Strange, seeing that Piazza has been tied to PED abuse himself. Even pseudo-admitted it.

        “Sure, I use,” he told one. “But in limited doses, and not all that often.”

      • braddavery - Jul 20, 2012 at 1:15 PM

        “He’s a guy who did it, and everybody knows it,” says Reggie Jefferson, the longtime major league first baseman. “It’s amazing how all these names, like Roger Clemens, are brought up, yet Mike Piazza goes untouched.”

        “There was nothing more obvious than Mike on steroids,” says another major league veteran who played against Piazza for years. “Everyone talked about it, everyone knew it. Guys on my team, guys on the Mets. A lot of us came up playing against Mike, so we knew what he looked like back in the day. Frankly, he sucked on the field. Just sucked. After his body changed, he was entirely different. ‘Power from nowhere,’ we called it.”

        When asked, on a scale of 1 to 10, to grade the odds that Piazza had used performance enhancers, the player doesn’t pause.

        “A 12,” he says. “Maybe a 13.”

    Funny what i remember was earlier that year Piazza got beaned by a pitch and got hurt, Clemens even called the hospital after the game to make sure he was doing ok but Mike wouldnt take his phone call. Then he held this big press conference crying like a baby saying it was on purpose and one of the tv networks i think it was fox kept playing it over and over and over again acting as if Mike was the only guy who ever got beaned. Personally i dont think mike handled it the right way especially with the press conference thingy and i think Clemens was upset over the big deal that was made over it. The roid rage thing is nonsense, end of story, im right again.

    • adenzeno - Jul 19, 2012 at 11:23 PM

      Clemens is/was famous for throwing at people…Do you not remember when he got to the Yankees that Jeter and another player greeted him wearing catcher’s gear?

  20. daweadilx - Jul 19, 2012 at 10:19 PM

    did roids fuel that terrible pic of her ?

  21. sawxalicious - Jul 20, 2012 at 1:04 AM

    Full disclosure: I’ve always been a Clemens fan. I was very disappointed when the steroid allegations came out. I think it is likely he did steroids/PEDs, but there has not been enough CREDIBLE evidence to prove beyond the shadow of a doubt. Throwing the bat was very unprofessional and unsportsmanlike, but I could see it being a case of Clemens being ultra competitive and getting caught up in the moment…or just acting like a douchebag (or some combination thereof). I don’t know that it was necessarily caused by “roid-rage.”

  22. badintent - Jul 20, 2012 at 1:24 AM

    Send Roger to Syria, along with Bonds, McGwire, Boone, Cancesco ,etc. Lets see how tough they can be when bullets and rockets are flying at their heads. !! Give them a baseball bat, roids, and helmet, see who has balls and who doesn’t.

  23. iclight79 - Jul 20, 2012 at 2:04 AM

    A few things: One, both Piazza and his wife appear to be pretty drunk here, and two, could they have picked a worse place for a screen cap preview of this video? Holy Christ, his wife, who isn’t baseball wife hot anyway, looks horrible paused. If you can’t remember what it looks like, refresh the page.

  24. daweadilx - Jul 20, 2012 at 8:42 AM

    she’s hairy “down there”

    • bbk1000 - Jul 22, 2012 at 10:11 AM

      I’m ashamed to admit this made me laugh….
