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” Has a Message for the Boston Red Sox

Posted to Good Guys Wear BlackA blogger has tried to get into the mind of AJ Pierzynski, and what he may be thinking at the moment. Some of the highlights: ” On the very first day I showed up at spring training, a couple goons pulled me aside, explained that I parked in a spot reserved for Ortiz’s son’s minibike, and whipped me with a chain.” ” I figured it was some sort...

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...
