It blows my mind that this Mike Piazza & Roger Clemens dust up was 16 years ago today(10/22/16). 

I get that it was the World Series and that had Piazza charged the mound, he would have been ejected and likely suspended but after that beaning Clemens gave him earlier in the summer he deserved to have his ass beat. 

Piazza owned him. .364 and 4 home runs in only 25 plate appearances. Jim Thome hit the most dingers off of Clemens with 8, but he had 73 plate appearances against him. Had they been in the same league Piazza would have destroyed him even more.
