Ortiz said of Pierzynski, who was on the receiving end of a punch from Cubs catcher Michael Barrett in Chicago on Saturday: “He’s stupid. He’s one of those rich kids, he doesn’t think about (expletive).”
But, believe it or not, those sentiments were expressed fondly, especially since when the two were teammates in Minnesota and Ortiz couldn’t buy an RBI, it was Pierzynski who told the slugger to keep fighting.

He should have said, "That's AJ being AJ."

Am I missing something here, did Ortiz not just sign a huge contract? He is making a lot more than AJ. If you go by Ozzie's terms of 'theese Kid' would make Ortiz a rich Kid.

:o:

It's all tongue-in-cheek...proving yet again that A.J. is a guy that you love on your team, hate to play against. That's all.

So if you are a multi-millionare baseball player from a poor, corrupt Caribean nation, that gives you the moral superiority to judge A.J. as a spoiled rich kid?

Okay, "Big Papi"...whatever? :rolleyes:
