Post ESPN Reports Pierzynski interest

I was just listening to ESPN 1000 and they reported on one of their newsbreaks that the Sox have interest in him tho. All they said was that.

I heard the tail end of it...did I hear correctly that they want to talk to him about his clubhouse behavior?

Not necessarily a great sign because if they have $$$ for AJ, that likely means they didn't get Clement/Perez (I'm assuming that AJ gets 3-4 and Odalis around 8).

Or looking the other way, it's a GREAT sign because it means that they have enough payroll to sign AJ AND a pitcher!

That would make sense. he is a veteran catcher, but he does need help with his clubhouse behavior.

Blech. All this guy is is a bat. He is horrible with pitchers, sub-par defensively, and has the same arm strength as my 15 year old sister. Plus all indications are that he is a complete tool.

maybe its just me but i'd rather see how Davis/Burke develop rather than see our #5 lose another 15 games. I dont see how the sox can signa catcher and a decent #5 unless they sign a deuche like el puque

Agreed. I only like signing Pierzynski if they also sign another starting pitcher. If it's either Pierzynski or a starting pitcher like Clement or Odalis Perez, I would rather not have A.J.

Seems that they will also discuss with him his lack of preparation for games. Interesting. I don't think the current coaching staff puts up with crap, and we know what KW does to tables when their is crap in the clubhouse. Maybe AJ just needs a little structure. I wouldn't hate if he gets signed, but I wouldn't be running down the streets of Milwaukee screaming because of happiness.

If the Sox are comfortable with his clubhouse demeanor, this could be a very good signing. A.J. hits for a higher average than what we currently have at the catcher position, he adds another much-needed left-handed bat to the everyday line-up (for a total of three) and I have heard that he calls a good game behind the plate. He is the type of scrappy player we need. Catcher, shortstop and third base were absolute sinkholes for the Sox offense last year. As far as I am concerned, both A.J. and Uribe as the everyday shortstop improve us substantially compared to the production we got out of their positions last year. Valentin hit a lot homers, but he was a terrible rally killer with his strike outs and horrific .OBP. If Crede rebounds we could end up having a very balanced offense. The key is making sure the other players would accept A.J. before we acquire him.

You mean sitting around playing cards instead of going over the hitters with the starting pitcher isn't good clubhouse behavior?

Screw him. Keep him off our team.

He's not very durable, but he was 8-2 with a 3.30 ERA last year. I don't care if he's closer to 80. For a 5th starter that can be skipped once in a while, his lack of durability won't show. And for the amount of money it would take, it's a small gamble. I'd rather have Perez or Clement, but if they strike out on those two, I'd rather take a chance on Hernandez and have the option of replacing him mid-season than make a long-term committment to Lowe or Milton and be stuck with them.

A story just came out about KW having a chat with Lee about his attitude and hustle. I have no idea why we would want this bum on our team.
