Stop the presses! - Pierzynski still a classless act
OAFC BBS - All Topics: Archive: Stop the presses! - Pierzynski still a classless act
I'm sure Giants fans knew this fromn last year as well, but this guy is just a total asshole. Offering your teammates $100 to homer off a pitcher you used to catch and play with? That is bush league. Man, I don't like to condone violence, but I really hope this guy gets what's coming to him (hey Rich Harden how about that 100mph heat a bit too close inside???)
Check this out:
The San Francisco Giants threw out four runners at the plate in a 6-5 win over the Chicago White Sox on Monday.
Joe Borchard, trying to make the team as a reserve outfielder, homered in the second and sixth innings for the White Sox.
After the game, Borchard found a $100 bill awaiting him at his locker, not knowing who it was from.
He later learned A. J. Pierzynski had offered $100 to any of his new White Sox teammates that hit a home run off Brett Tomko.
Tomko, along with several other San Francisco players, labeled Pierzynski a clubhouse "cancer" last season, after the catcher joined the Giants as a free agent.
"I enjoyed my time as a Giant, but I'm not going to lie. I'm happy I'm not back there," said Pierzynski, who did not play Monday.
"I met some great people and I still have some friends I talk to over there. But some people over there know what they are.
"I've moved on. I wish them the best of luck and hopefully we can play them in the World Series and beat them."

I seriously doubt he has ANY friends on the Giants or Twins ... unless they are as classless as he. Somebody forgot a few screws when they put him together.

Rome loves AJ.

AJ just loves microphone and TV camera. If any players of any team rams into him, I will get a little chuckle out of that.

He should have given Borchard two hundred.

Jerry, I keep forgetting to ask this question. Was it you I heard yelling "you suck" at AJ while you were at ST? I distinctly heard those words on one of the broadcasts. If it was you, way to go!

Sorry to disappoint you Eyleen, but alas it was not me. C'mon, you know me better than that. Hopefully my verbal attacks are slightly more cerebral than "you suck".

LOL, pardon me!
