AJ PIERZYNSKI RUMORS

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

By Mike Cole 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...

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.

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.
