A.J. Pierzynski Hit A Game-Tying Ninth-Inning Home Run And This Was Still The Best Thing He Did Last Night

The Braves took a wild 9-8 victory from the Giants with a two-run, 12th-inning walkoff shot from 30-year-old rookie Adonis Garcia, and they wouldn’t have made it that far without catcher A.J. Pierzynski’s ninth-inning, two-out, two-run bomb. But nothing was more fun than Pierzynski trying to frame a pitch that bounced… »8/04/15 10:45am8/04/15 10:45am

Red Sox DFA A.J. Pierzynski, Smear Him On His Way Out

The Red Sox let A.J. Pierzynski go yesterday, barely halfway through his one-year, $8.25 million deal. It is the second least-surprising thing in the world that he reportedly rubbed teammates the wrong way by being a loner, ignoring his pitchers, and generally being a prick. (The first least-surprising thing in the… »7/10/14 9:57am7/10/14 9:57am

Lance Barrett Tosses A.J. Pierzynski And Robin Ventura, Shameless Homer Hawk Harrelson Goes Off Again

"Lance Barrett's just stunk the joint up, is all he's done, that's all he's done...he's terrible." Hawk, you might recall, got into a bit of a pickle when he referred to umpire Mark Wegner as "brutal" and "totally absurd" while questioning his baseball knowledge. He got a stern talking to from Bud Selig and everyone… »8/26/12 10:00am8/26/12 10:00am

A.J. Pierzynski's Home Run Hit A Toddler Because Two Adults Got Themselves Out Of Harm's Way

You might have already seen this clip of A.J. Pierzynski going deep off Jason Isringhausen in the seventh inning yesterday afternoon, since Pierzynski set a White Sox record by homering in his fifth straight game. But a reader named Chris alerted us to where the ball wound up: just inches in front of the head of a… »8/06/12 10:25am8/06/12 10:25am

A.J. Pierzynski Has No Problem Calling Twins Pitcher Nick Blackburn A "Piece Of Shit" To His Face

A.J. Pierzynski is not the most popular ballplayer. This is, after all, the guy whose own manager said "If you play against A.J., you hate him. If you play with him, you hate him a little less." So should anyone really be surprised that upon scoring the tying run tonight against Minnesota, the White Sox catcher… »7/31/12 10:20pm7/31/12 10:20pm

Won't Somebody Remind A.J. Pierzynski There Are Only Two Outs?

Top of the eighth, none on, one out, and Matt Thornton catches David DeJesus looking for strike three. The White Sox are well on their way to avoiding a sweep. OK. Looks like Starlin Castro is up next, and—hang on. A.J.? Yo, A.J.? What the—where's he going? Hey! Wait. Did everyone forget? Don't they know—ah, whatever.… »6/21/12 10:45am6/21/12 10:45am

Ozzie Guillen Will Appear On Baseball Tonight Throughout The World Series

It dawns on me that we could play a game with two tentpoles of recent Chicago White Sox squads. We'll call the game "Guillen OR Pierzynski." Said the White Sox drink rally beer during games to get themselves going? (Pierzynski.) Went on a profane tirade after the White Sox lost to Bruce fucking Chen? (Guillen.) Got… »10/17/11 1:05pm10/17/11 1:05pm

Not To Be Outdone, A.J. Pierzynski Would Like You To Know That The White Sox Occasionally Drink "Rally Beer" During Games

White Sox catcher A.J. Pierzynski, everyone's favorite bleached-blond gnat (and World Series broadcaster), apparently wanted to stick up for the Red Sox players, bullied by the owners and the Boston Globe. So he went on The Dan Patrick Show and told everyone the White Sox occasionally drink in the clubhouse. Rally… »10/12/11 4:00pm10/12/11 4:00pm

A.J. Pierzynski Will Be Irritating You On World Series Broadcasts This Year

Fox Sports announced today, per USA Today, that once-blond nuisance (and current White Sox starting catcher) AJ Pierzynski would join Eric Karros' pompadour and the formerly frosted, still gelled tips of Chris Rose on Fox's World Series pregame and postgame coverage. Yuck. (We presume Jeanne Zelasko and Kevin Kennedy… »10/03/11 7:45pm10/03/11 7:45pm
