    Pierzynski is one of my favorites all time, I read his Giants teamamtes hated him because he would sit in the locker room and watch Twins games before the Giants games started because he was such a Twins fan!

    He used to talk trash about the Twins all the time and it was always extra sweet when we kicked the White Sox asses! And their announcer "The Hawk" Harrelson is a huge douche as well!

    I found this article which pretty much summed up why he is the most hated Giant of all time by most people, without a close second:

    "For starters, Brian Sabean grossly overpaid for the Minnesota Twins catcher, giving up Joe Nathan, Boof Bonser and Francisco Liriano. Many would later consider the trade one of the worst in recent memory.

    Then there was the player the Giants got in return. A.J. Pierzynski has been universally regarded as one of the most hated players in baseball. He is selfish, egotistical and quick to blame anyone but himself.

    The Giants are no strangers to difficult personalities, having fostering the king of them all in Barry Bonds. But Bonds also delivered with his bat, while Pierzynski was mediocre at best. In 128 at bats, he offered a dismal .272 BA to go with 11 home runs and 77 RBI.

    Also, there's this story, courtesy of the San Francisco Chronicle. In spring training, Pierzynski was hit by an errant ball in his nether regions. When trainer Stan Conte came to his side and asked him how he was feeling, Pierzynski said "like this" and socked Conte in the groin. The article states there were multiple witnesses to this event, and that it slipped under the radar because all the beat reporters were away doing interviews."

    We gave you guys freakin Joe Nathan AND Francisco Liriano for a guy who only played half of a year for us then was gone. Worst trade in Giants history.

    I always found it funny that a cop from Los Angeles would get a job coaching the Twins.

    We do this and include Partners somehow. Fit the AL to NL into the years. That would be challenging

    Sports talk always plays the sound byte of the Hawk's "Put it on the board... yes!" They play it for one of the daily contests that they do, so I hear it all the time.
