Dear White Sox Fans,

Thank you for all your votes and for helping me become a 2006 American League All-Star. Being selected as one of the Final Vote nominees was special, but to be selected as an All-Star by the fans -- over four very talented and deserving players -- is truly an unbelievable honor.

Ever since I joined the White Sox, it's been one dream come true after another. From the amazing 2005 season and a World Series title, to this year's great start and now my second All-Star berth, I'm so fortunate that I found a place I can call home. The White Sox have the best fans in the world, and your support for me during these past few days just proves how passionate and dedicated you are.

I'll do everything I can to help the American League win the All-Star Game and secure home-field advantage for the World Series. Hopefully, it will end up benefiting the White Sox come October!
Thank you again, White Sox fans! Sincerely,
A.J.

Man, that Pierzynski is such a classless jerk. No wonder everyone hates him.

Just make sure you hit a bomb in Pittsburgh and when you do, I want a batflip like the one against the Dodgers from last season. That is still the coolest picture.

Heard AJ on Dan Patrick's show the other day. He sounds the kind of guy you want on your team in every way.

I predict AJ will make a nice living in Chicago after he retires if he wants to. He will be playing a more sophisticated Steve McMichael character that can do radio or front for a business. He is golden in this town forever. Of course so is Paulie,Thome,Burls,JD,JoltinJoe, Juanie,tadahito,and Pods. And bobby,Jose,Freddie,Gar,Cotts,and Hermy.

I heard AJ's appreciation on WSCR this morning. What was moving--and kinda sad--was to hear him voice how being voted in by the fans was personally affirming. I really think he is tired of being painted as the ogre of MLB. We're his affirmation...and I for one am happy to be that.

You're welcome, A.J.

My only problem is that if I have to keep buying all these new jerseys--Paulie, Big Jim, and now you--I may have to start moonlighting. :cool:

We got his back. Without AJ, the Sox don't win a World Title last year, case closed. For that, I'll personally never quit on him.

AJ is the Core of the Core on the Sox. He's wayy underrated and his role with some of the pitchers is beyond exceptional; just look at what COntreras has done after he stopped shaking AJ off about a year ago.

Thank YOU Anthony, It was you who convinced KW to bring you to the Sox.
It was you that worked with the 05 rotation and bench to bring out the best in the pitchers. It was you who executed the heads up plays in the playoffs and
World Series that helped the Sox get their first trophy in 88 years. It is you (and Oz) who keep the Sox in the national spotlight. Oh, and it was you who went yard against the Cubs a few weeks ago to win the game.

Thank YOU, no one deserves it more.
