Has Pierzynski always been a Platooooooon?

Postby scb175 » Wed May 11, 2005 4:42 pm

I read a lot of good things about this guy on here before my draft. I was banking on him as my starting catcher for the season. For some unknown reason, he's been losing playing time to Chris Widger. AJ is hitting .247 on the season, and I was wondering if the rest of the Cafe is worried about him?

Platoon

All catchers tend to be platooned. That's why someone catcher eligible like Inge is so valuable.

AJ does have pretty weak splits against lefties, but I knew that going in. I have usually been able to pick up a decent catcher (it's a one catcher league), to cover the days when he plays against a lefty.

Are you happy now?! :-)

Had to bump this thread because AJ has been unreal since I read this thread for the first time. It's been bugging me b/c I was one of those guys who promoted AJ during the offseason.

Same here. I was telling everyone to draft him.
