Did anyone else see that replay they showed of AJ yesterday when Wise stole second base? I was cracking up when they showed it. I can see why other teams hate him but that was great.

For the people who didn't see it, in the 3rd inning Dewayne Wise stole 2nd while AJ was up to bat. Navarro threw to 2nd which hopped into centerfield, after that inning they showed a replay and when Navarro got up to throw the ball, AJ just looked at him and kind of taunted him with the bat. He basically made it look like he was going to throw the bat in front of the ball that was going to be thrown to 2nd.

Oh AJ :rolleyes::rolling:

You wouldn't be able to catch it in normal speed. You really gotta slow it down cause it happened REALLY fast. But yeah, when they showed the replay I cracked up, that was hilarious.

There is a post about this on the ESPN playoff blog by Wayne Drehs. He makes it sound like AJ actually put his bat in front of Navarro. I doubt that's what happened, though. Could someone give a detailed explanation?

AJ basically tilted the bat and brought it back immediately before Navarro threw the ball. It didn't really phase Navarro, the ball made it to second which Bartlett missed. I think there were 2 kind of shady plays on there on each side but both were an attempt to help the team. AJ was trying to distract Navarro to hopefully get a bad throw, and Bartlett sprawled on top of Wise and sort of blocked him so he couldn't advance another base.

Another subtly cool thing Pierzynski did came in the ninth when Iwamura hit his grounder back to Jenks. As soon as Iwamura hit it and before Jenks even threw the ball, Pierzynski had already flashed two fingers by his side, indicating two outs.

Love him. And for the exact reasons that I and everyone else here hated him when he was with the Twins.
