The Sox couldn't have figured out a way too come up with that? What a crock of ****.
Thanks for the memories, Anthony John. Sorry our front office apparently lowballed you. You deserved better.
Absolutely agree. Sure, Pierzynski is a sentimental favorite, but he was also a hell of a ballplayer with his savvy and hustle. I don't get how the Sox couldn't make a one-year deal attractive enough to get Pierzynski to stay.
Hahn obviously wants Flowers in that slot so he must think that a higher caught-stealing percentage trumps everything else. A.J. had everything else.

We've got tickets to the August 24 game. He'll get a nice round of applause from me. Thanks for the good times, A.J.
