WATCH: St. Louis Cardinals Catcher A.J. Pierzynski Attempts Embarrassing Flop

A.J. Pierzynski has no future in acting. His attempt to to flop during the Cardinals/Giants game Wednesday was so bad his family is probably at home hoping no one they know is watching. If they are they know they are going to hear about this at work, and there is no defending it. It is that bad.How bad? If LeBron James had flopped like this in a game he would pay the fine and suspended...

During the second inning of Game 4 of the National League Championship Series, San Francisco Giants outfielder...

Ex-Red Sox John Lackey, A.J. Pierzynski Good NLCS Match For Cardinals

As disastrous as A.J. Pierzynski’s run with the Boston Red Sox was this season, there was one pitcher who developed an excellent on-field rapport with the veteran catcher.

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.

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...

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.
