A.J. Pierzynski was on the Dan Patrick show and he told him he has had some beer during a game and all the other things going on in the clubhouse are not a surprise.

Of course when they have a beer it is only "just a sip" and not the whole thing. I can just picture these guys in the clubhouse, "Hey, does anyone want to share this beer with me,  I just want a sip." If you like beer, you don't have just a sip, you have the whole damn bottle or can. A.J. also mentioned the "rally beer", typically in extra innings. I'm thinking the rally beer happened before extras, and more often than just a sip. Fried chicken and beer are a pretty good combo, another reason a whole beer would be necessary.

I don't see a problem with eating during a game. As fans, we can't get past the third inning without having rumbles in our stomachs. These guys have been on the field for hours before the game and are playing long games, so eating shouldn't be an issue, as long it is a quick bite. We heard about Pedroia eating hot dogs during a game and thought it was funny. The difference is the pairing of activities along with the KFC family meal.

I don't see how playing video games doesn't surprise Piezynski. These guys should not be in the clubhouse, playing video games during a game. Do they really have that much of an edge that they need to fire up video games and not being in the dugout supporting your team. Maybe they are just bored, most people are with baseball.

So if A.J. Pierzynski said it doesn't surprise him and he sees similar things, is it ok? If it is a common thing in clubhouses and we are just hearing about it now, maybe it is not the problem. This could have been going on in 2004 and 2007, but since they won, it wouldn't be a problem. Overall, this is just one more thing to point our fingers at.
