Not breaking news: A.J. Pierzynski enjoys being the bad boy

| 3 Comments | No TrackBacks
Scanning for something to watch after the Little League World Series Consolation Game (boy, that's one of the more depressing sentences ever), I stumbled on this feature 'SportsCenter' aired on White Sox catcher and controversy enthusiast A.J. Pierzynski.

It literally had no context or peg, they just threw it out there. It was weird. It really seemed to cite incidents that were three and four years old. It made me feel a little confused about what was going on.

The important thing is that it filled about three idle minutes.

Anyway, here's something for you White Sox fans to watch, because this whole East Coast swing just hasn't been too fun.

I don't hate AJ. I love the guy. People need to leave him alone. I think that he has done one heck of a job as catcher for the White Sox.

i LOVE a.j.
he's so funny and i love that he doesn't give a crap about what people think/say about him.

I agree, Brenda. Especially this year with his bat.

I hope Kenny Williams doesn't pull a Kenny Williams and trade A.J. in exchange for an "athlete" who carries a big stick. The White Sox lack "heads up" players like A.J. What he lacks in foot speed or panache he more than makes up for with his quick thinking in situations that make a difference in the outcome of a game. The Sox won in 2005 because they played as a team and had heads up players taking advantages of opportunities when they presented themselves. Today's team doesn't do that. They're all stuck in their own little worlds and have blinders on devoid of game situation. If Kenny Williams were smart, he'd get more A.J. types than the pure athlete he usually tries to get.
