What AJ Pierzynski would tell the Redsocks

"What I’m finding hard to swallow... is ************** smear job you guys have been pulling on me since I was unceremoniously dumped."

“AJ Pierzynski” Has a Message for the Boston Red Sox

Posted to Good Guys Wear BlackA blogger has tried to get into the mind of AJ Pierzynski, and what he may be thinking at the moment. Some of the highlights: ” On the very first day I showed up at spring training, a couple goons pulled me aside, explained that I parked in a spot reserved for Ortiz’s son’s minibike, and whipped me with a chain.” ” I figured it was some sort...

AJ Pierzynski Writes His Former Red Sox Teammates

So it’s been a week since I was DFA’ed. And yesterday, my ties to the Boston Red Sox were officially cut. So now I’m out here, floating through Major League Baseball like some great, untethered zeppelin just looking for a place to call home for a couple months. And I’m fine with that. Maybe I’ll latch on to a team that ends up officially eliminating you guys from contention...

A.J. Pierzynski: ‘I’ll Go Anywhere’ After Being DFA’d By Boston Red Sox

Catcher A.J. Pierzynski apparently isn’t closing the book on anything after being designated for assignment by the Boston Red Sox this week. The Red Sox decided to part ways with Pierzynski before Wednesday’s game against the Chicago White Sox at Fenway Park, calling up catching prospect Christian Vazquez to take the 37-year-old’s place on the major league roster. It sounds...

Pierzynski unpopular because he spent 'significant' time on his phone

The Red Sox designated catcher A.J. Pierzynski for assignment on Wednesday, mostly because he was unproductive and they had a younger, better option in prospect Christian Vazquez. It was a common sense move. Pierzynski has long had a reputation for being a bit of a jerk, though it was often played off as a "you hate playing against him but love having him on your team"...

Shocker: the Red Sox publicly criticize A.J. Pierzynski after cutting him

In Boston, it’s never enough to lose and never enough to cut ties with a player who isn’t playing very well. Losing has to come with drama and departed players have to be kicked by anonymous sources as not just bad players, but bad people as they leave town. It’s just uncanny. The latest is Rob Bradford’s piece, sourced by someone inside the Red Sox, that says A.J. Pierzynski...

A. J. Pierzynski's All-Time Classic Umpire Insult

In the midst of an article that shows 2014 ejections up almost 30% over last year, we find a great little vignette about Red Sox catcher A.J. Pierzynski. Earlier in June, A.J. was upset with the strike-calling ability of young umpire Quinn Wolcott. After his battery mate issued a walk, Pierzynski turned and laid this beauty on Wolcott: "Give me a new ball. One you can see."...
