A lot of people felt that way, that's all I'm saying.Who cares? He was beating them and they didn't like it and he didn't care if they liked it. People don't like Pierzynski, they think he's a ******. He probably is to the other team but his teammates love him.
Insufferable hot dog? Alfonso Soriano? Sammy Sosa? Hell Pete Rose played as hard as he could all the time; is that a hot dog?
Personally, as a kid growing up in Cincy, I loved watching Rose more than any player, up until he grew selfish in his pursuit of the hit record (but you did have to excuse him for that).
