Pierzynski developed a reputation as a hothead in Minnesota and was unpopular with many opposing teams who accused him of chirping behind the plate and other unsportsmanlike conduct. This spring, the Giants accepted him and several players praised his feisty, emotional style of play.

A month into the season, the honeymoon apparently is over.

"You know he's an abrasive person, and you tolerate it," a Giants pitcher said, "but when you're around it this long, it starts to wear you out."

A career .301 hitter entering the season, Pierzynski has four hits over his past

Peirzinski, Manstinkawitz, Fick, are all drill rods.

From that article:

"I've never in all my years seen a catcher who didn't watch video before games," one pitcher told the newspaper. "He doesn't watch hitters -- other than the Twins games when they're on TV."

Awwww, he still pines for the twinkies. Screw him.

yeah just wait till he messes up your fantasy team's chemistry too. he'll start by pissing off other players and then your own players. then your pitchers performances start to go down because they dont want to be on the mound...

ok, maybe not, but aj perzydinskiskiskiski is quite the prick

He has a weekly radio "show" every week on the Razor/Tom Tolbert show, and he was on there today playing it off like, "I didn't know anyone felt that way about me."

While I dislike him as much as the next guy, what is so bad about "chirping behind the plate"? Did doing that disappear along with a pitcher's ability to pitch inside without getting a glare from the batter?

Back in the day, Yogi Berra never stopped talking when he was behind the plate. Maybe it has something to do with what he's chirping about?
