AJ PIERZYNSKI RUMORS

Mets’ Bartolo Colon Chases Down A.J. Pierzynski With Agile Grace (Video)

We’ve made fun of Bartolo Colon a lot in the past. But the New York Mets pitcher deserves all our admiration for his feat of athleticism Thursday. Colon was on the mound in the sixth inning at Citi Field when he noticed Atlanta Braves catcher A.J. Pierzynski straying off first base. Colon stepped off, and with the swiftness of a cat, tracked down Pierzynski to tag him for the out...

AJ Pierzynski Will Run Over an Umpire If He Has to

It was a weird day for Braves catcher AJ Pierzynski. If you look at the box score alone, it looks like he had a solid day (despite the loss), going 2-4 with a run scored. However, those who watched the game — or followed along on social media — know AJ had quite the adventure on the field. In the fifth inning, AJ was up to usual AJ things, like running over the home plate umpire...

Bartolo Colon Jiggles His Way To Amazing Unassisted Pickoff Of A.J. Pierzynski

The Mets beat the Braves 6-3 on Thursday morning and Bartolo Colon thoroughly embarrassed AJ Pierzynski in the process. Sure, Pierzynski managed to get two hits off of Colon but Colon got the last laugh as he somehow caught Pierzynski trying to steal second and simply ran over and tagged him out while Pierzynski stood Article found on: Next Impulse Sports

WATCH: Joe West casually ejects A.J. Pierzynski mid at-bat

Maybe they were arguing about who’s more unlikable across baseball. Umpire Joe West and Atlanta Braves catcher A.J. Pierzynski had a little run-in Wednesday night during the Braves’ spring training game vs. the New York Yankees. West and Pierzynski’s behind-the-plate back-and-forth apparently carried on for just about an entire half inning. The catcher felt his pitcher was...

Pierzynski not bitter, but wants to beat Red Sox

A.J. Pierzynski wasn’t looking to cause any commotion Tuesday night. The St. Louis Cardinals catcher had just finished facing his former team, the Boston Red Sox, for the first time since they released him last month. Pierzynski’s departure from Boston was rather unceremonious, sure, but the veteran backstop had nothing but good things to say about his time with the Red Sox...

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'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." Pierzynski...
