Jayson Stark may spell his name funny, but he knows his baseball:

From that article:

Asked how they killed all that time, Pierzynski revealed: "We sat around and watched the World Series DVD for a while there -- and made fun of everyone who showed up on it. But mostly Aaron Rowand."
Rowand, alas, wasn't around to defend himself, since he was traded to the Phillies over the winter. But he still managed to take part in the rain-delay ridicule festivities.
"Yeah, we were texting him back and forth," said his buddy, Pierzynski. "About the best he came up with was [to Pierzynski]: 'Get a haircut.' But I told him he was just jealous because he doesn't have [I]any hair."



That's really cool to hear. It just reinforces how special last year's team really was. Makes me shed a tear that Rowand's not here, but makes me smile to know that he's not forgoten.

I love to hear that about the texting. I will miss Rowand. But times change and you have to constantly be retooling to stay on top. But I am glad he is still close with the guys ont his team and wish him the best of luck this year. I love this team. :D:
