  • A.J Pierzynski 5 days straight with a homerun.

    He tied the Whitesox record for consecutive days with a homerun with 5. I'm hoping the Sox re-sign him for at least 2 years. Although I don't think he can repeat the year he's having now. He's still better than any catcher the Sox have in the minors.

    AJ is having by far the best year of his career at age 35. He's putting up his best-ever stats in home runs, slugging, OPS+, RBI's. Look at his GDP (ground into double plays). For the last five years, he has averaged 17.8 GDP's a year. This year he has five. How does a 35 year-old catcher do that? I have heard speculation that Tyler Flowers is going to be the regular catcher next year, and AJ won't be re-signed. Maybe this is motiviating him, I don't know. Or else he's gotten hold of some new, undetectable PED's.
    They call me Mr. Baseball. Not because of my love for the game; because of all the stitches in my head.

      Could be - he's even scoring from 1st base on groundouts now! :hyper:

        If he does sign with the Whitesox and somehow has two more decent years he could be ranked pretty high as one of the top alltime Whitesox catchers. I would say Fisk, Schalk and it's pretty close between Pierzynski and Lollar.
