REPORT: Red Sox Sign A. J. Pierzynski

Coming To A Fenway Near You!
According to Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com, the Red Sox have signed free-agent catcher A. J. Pierzynski to a one-year deal. The soon-to-be 37-year old has a .283 lifetime batting average and an career OPS of .322. It's unclear whether his quirky personality traits will meld with the beard-centric Sox clubhouse—although most hatred for Pierzynski has come from opposing players. Clearly, Jarrod Saltalamacchia's time in Boston is over—as reports surface that he will sign with the Miami Marlins. Wow, just when we finally mastered Salty's name, now we get Pierzynski!
