A.J. Pierzynski attempts to frame pitch that bounced five feet in front of home plate (VIDEO)

Pierzynski actually attempted to frame a breaking ball that bounced about five feet in front...

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.

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.
