“On top of that, Vin Scully was crushing me,” Piazza wrote.
Scully flatly denied he maligned Piazza.
“That’s not true at all,” Scully told The Times in a telephone interview Wednesday.
Scully said he could not recall the interview in which Piazza said the contract deadline was discussed. However, Scully said, he never would criticize a player about contractual negotiations.
“As God is my judge, I don’t get involved in these things,” Scully said. “I can’t imagine I would ever put my toe in the water as far as a player and his negotiations.
“I have no idea where he is coming from. I really have no idea. I can’t imagine saying something about a player and his contract. I just don’t do that, ever. I’m really flabbergasted by that reference.”
