    A girl I used to go to school with is from Minnesota and she said she and some of her friends ran into Luis Rivas one night at a restaurant. They were talking about Pierzynski and he said to her that everyone on the team was so relieved when he was traded to San Francisco. He said that A.J. couldn't get along with anyone and always caused problems.

    I don't think anybody likes AJP, except maybe those guys he helped win a ring last year.

    Still, that's no excuse for a cheapshot like Barrett threw at him.

    I'm also ticked because I'm going to lose Barrett from my fantasy team for a few games worth of suspension.

    Why, shouldn't a man be excused for defending himself? I can say that I would've done the same thing in that situation because I hate people like that. The Cubs are playing .400 ball right now and I'm sure A.J. was making fun of the Cubs, no doubt in my mind. He got what he deserved.

It's funny how winning a championship can change public opinion of a guy.
    Guy lays out for an important run in a huge series, shows some emotion at the same time. Don't get the criticism of his play. We loved Pete when he did it. That run was key at the time, Sox hadn't blown it open yet. Nothing but good during his stay in Chicago.

    He was making fun of the Cubs? I do not see a problem.

    after seeing the two of them being interviewed, it was clear that barrett simply overreacted...he got his butt ran over in a hard nosed play by aj...good old fashioned baseball if you ask me.

    Re: Cubs vs Whitesox fight!

    Let's get one thing straight, I HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE Pierzynski.

    But it really showed a lack of character for Barrett to sucker punch a guy who didn't even have his arms raised in defense.

    I believe the score was 5 to zip and the Cubs are banged up and really struggling..

    BTW, you can bet AJP learned his lesson about celebrating after bowling over a catcher like that.

    Actually that was the first run of the game. And so what if the Cubs are banged up and strugging. Should the Sox take pity on them?

    That was the first run of the game. Iguchi merely slammed the nail in a couple spots later to make it 5-0. Go Sox.

    Yes, Barrett deserves 30 days IMO. No one... I said no one... should be allowed to punch another player in the face like that. I do not care what he did. Esp. what AJ did... collison at plate (happens in the game), celebrates that he made it (happens in the game). Punching someopne in the face in a gutless fashion does not happen in the game and should be punished with no remorse.

    I do not care about AJ's reputation. I do not care about what might have been said by AJ to Barrett after Barrett heightened the situation by grabbing AJ as AJ was going to his dugout. He punched him and he did it in a wuss-like way. Barrett needs to grow some baseballs between his legs or something.

    BTW... I read Barrett's post-game comments this morning and I give him credit. He admitted that he should not have done what he did.

    On July 4, 1932 Bill Dickey is suspended for 30 days and fined $1,000 for breaking the jaw of the Senators' Carl Reynolds with one punch, after a collision at home plate.

    Good stuff, woy.

    I'll bet... Dickey did not have the wonderful Union defending his punch and requesting a hearing that would be required before the punishment can happen.
