What is your opinion of the A.J. Pierzynski signing?
MJH on accountability
MLBTR reporting that it is down to the cubs and Rangers for him. I like him: good ground ball rate, a mid-90s FB, great slider and change up, good FIP last couple years, and 200 inning guy, but does struggle with the walks. He also has been passed from team to team, as a guy who has amazing stuff just not the attitude or work ethic to put it all together. At any reasonable cost, I think he'd be a good fit at the four year contract that is currently reported, as he is only 29.
I doubt he'll get 4 yrs, but I like the idea of bringing his great arm in and letting the Maddux twins see what they can do. He could be a lower risk high reward guy that allows Perez more time to season in AAA.
Numbers show that he's done pretty well against the Angels. He's got good stuff.
