Ok, read this story about my latest man-crush A J Pierzynski and tell me that he is not just what the Mets need. Here is a blurb from Ron Gardenhire one of AJ’s former mangers and and ex-Met:


“A.J. comes to beat you everyday,” said Twins manager Ron Gardenhire, who managed Pierzynski for two seasons before he was traded to the Giants. “No matter how you look at him and how you feel about him. He comes to figure out a way to beat you, irritate you. …

“People don’t like him and all those things, but when he’s on the baseball field you better respect him because he knows how to play and he knows how to beat you and he’ll do all those goofy little things to try and get in your head.”

Read the whole article and tell me I’m wrong to be cam paging for Pierzynski to the Mets in ’09

    Instead of becoming a cornerstone player for San Francisco, Pierzynski was accused of kicking trainer Stan Conte in the groin, he was criticized by the pitching staff for playing cards instead of reviewing videotape before games, and he was accused of telling opposing hitters what pitch was coming.

    Worst of all, Pierzynski was dubbed a “clubhouse cancer.”

  2. Hate to disagree with you here, Steve, but “we” just got rid of Pierzynski-Lite: Paul LoDuca.

  3. Frank from Jersey says:

    We need guys like Eckstien who hustle their asses off every day. I’m not saying to get him now because he’s at the end of his career but that’s the kind of guy we need – a gamer but who is not a prick.

  4. kranepool says:

    I think Pierzynski is a much better player than Paul LoDuca ever was. What messed up LoDuca was he got caught up in the bright lights of the big as his born in Brooklyn stuff was way overplayed he left the county of Kings when he wa san infant.
