A.J. Being A.J.

If it’s an extra-inning game that the Sox absolutely need to win, A.J. Pierzynski will try anything to give his team a better chance to win. I just can’t believe the umpires keep falling for his shenanigans.

In today’s must-win series finale against the might Rays, Pierzynski found himself in a rundown after straying too far from second on a ground ball to short. Once he knew he was destined to be tagged out, heAdd Tampa to the list of cities where A.J. will have a hard time getting a drink threw himself towards Rays third baseman Willy Aybar hoping to draw an interference call. Even though he didn’t even appear to make contact with Aybar, he somehow was able to sell his case to the umpire.

Rather than it being two out with a runner on first, the Sox had runners on the corners with only one out. An intentional walk to Jim Thome led to Alexei Ramirez knocking home the game-winner and giving the Sox some much-needed momentum heading off to a big road trip.

After losing the first two games of the series to the pesky Rays, the game was as much of a must-win game the Sox have had all year.

Besides A.J.’s antics, Paul Konerko was the game’s other big hero by coming through with a pinch hit single to tie the game in the bottom of the ninth. After not getting any breaks in the first two games of the series, the Sox finally got some bounces to go their way late in today’s game.

If the Sox are lucky enough to face the Rays this October, Pierzynski should expect to get Anaheim treatment from the fans in Tampa. I don’t think he’d have it any other way.

    He can expect to take one in the ribcage at some point.

    Smart play that takes a lazy set of umpires to pull off. He pulled it off.

    I’ve never disliked a non-NYY/BoSox player more than I dislike AJP. He is the definition of ‘major tool.’ Sure, he ‘does what it takes,’ but it’s total bush league shit. No wonder people like to punch him.

    He’s a douche, but it works.

    He’s just a douch. I’m glad he’s on the Sox.
