10:17 AM ET 05.12 | The Rangers' pitching staff loves the way A.J. Pierzynski handles a game. When Pierzynski went on the disabled list last week with a strained right oblique, he had a 2.84 catcher's ERA compared with a 4.14 mark for Geovany Soto.

I hate this guy. Giants gave up a King's ransom to get him and he stunk up the joint.

He stopped by today for a Mother's Day surprise and she told him he couldn't come in because she hadn't dusted and was embarrassed. At first, she said she wasn't familiar with an "AJ" and asked to see some ID.

Keep your day job Lamont and don't listen to other people trying to convince you that you are a comedian.

aj's teammates--and fans of his team-- always love him. it's the opposition that hates him. kinda like kevin garnett. he's chippy so opponents get sick of him. but he's all in with his teammates so he quickly earns their respect.

I never understood this, in 2004 AJ batted .272, led all NL catchers in RBI and had a fielding % of .999.

I also find it hard to believe that the Ranger pitchers like pitching to him, last years W. Sox pitchers certainly didn't.
