MLB: Piazza signing motivates TC's Mirabelli
TRAVERSE CITY - It has been a winter of change for Doug Mirabelli - perhaps a little too much change.

Once a popular member of the Boston Red Sox, the Traverse City resident was traded to San Diego in December and told shortly thereafter that he would be the team's starting catcher in 2006.

Then came the recent free-agent signing of longtime all-star Mike Piazza, who hopes to catch 90-100 games for the Padres this summer.

"It bums me out a little bit, to be honest," Mirabelli said earlier this week before leaving for spring training in Peoria, Ariz. "I've always held back and tried not to get too excited about things because baseball is what it is - a business - and things can change pretty quickly.
(General manager Kevin Towers) told me that I would start unless something fell into his lap, and Piazza will help this team," Mirabelli said.
