Schmidt vs. Pierzynski?

Postby benjapage » Sat Aug 14, 2004 1:30 am

from rotoworld.com:
A.J. Pierzynski drove in five runs with a home run and a double tonight.
After a slow start, Pierzynski has been one of the league's most productive catchers since the start of May. Still, he hasn't helped himself in San Francisco by getting on Jason Schmidt's bad side. Yorvit Torrealba is catching most of Schmidt's starts now.


no details? what happened? just curious, but was this incident baseball related?

Im not really sure, but I remember A.J. was talking trash to the media here in the Bay Area about "a few" of his pitchers...

Anytime you have a 50/50 choice between two players, 90% of the time, you'll get it wrong

I don't know what he did specifically to JS - but apparently the entire team dislikes AJ. He came in with a cocky attitude and he rubs people the wrong way. He has never been a good teammate but I thought that this had all been smoothed over 2 months ago after AJ got benched a few times, guess I was wrong.

It's nothing at all. A.J. has caught quite a few of Schmidt's games. In fact, he caught that 1 hit shutout Schmidt had way back on the same day RJ threw his perfect game.

As far as saying the entire team dislikes him, I think that's pretty far fetched. The stuff that happened earlier in the season is behind all of them. As far as I can tell, the team gets along with him great. All that talk about him being a "cancer" earlier on in the season was pretty innacurate IMO. If you want to point out a "cancer" like player, take a look at Tomko.
