People tend to hate A.J. Pierzynski. I think it’s mostly because he did something kinda lame against their team one time and they didn’t much care for it. Or it’s just based on reputation and word of mouth. People have been hating on Pierzynski for years and at some point you just get a rep you can’t shake.
But if he’s ON your team and you watch him play over several months you begin to love the guy. At least if you have any sense and taste. He just doesn’t give a damn about anything and there’s something fantastic about that.
Like this. This is beautiful. This is the sort of thing that makes watching your losing, skidding team on a random Monday night in August worthwhile:

Bogus that he didn’t get the call right there, man.
