I love A.J., but he was always a fake tough guy. He and Kevin Garnett are both first ballot entries into the Fake Tough Guy Hall of Fame.

I would assume AJ had the ****head factor cranked all the way to ultra-Pierzynski for the series knowing that everything he did would be overanalyzed by people in Chicago.

Yes he did. I think it might have been amazement that Addison doubled him up with two straight excellent changeups....AJ had no chance.

Hector Santiago is one of my favorite Sox players,period.
I will always root hard for him to succeed,and I think he will.
I know talent is necessary but this kid also has the character to rise to the top.
After I read about his unprompted, spontaneous trip up to ,Newtown Ct.,after the shooting up there, to just try to do what he could, and how he was brought into the school and he spoke to the children about his own background and how to persevere in tough situations,and how the kids all became instant Sox fans due to his warmth and personality....

It touched my heart. He is a very good guy. Way to go Hector..sometimes good things do happen to good people.
