A.J. Pierzynski had his contract extended yesterday. He’s already signed for next season, but is now slated to make $12.5MM over ’09-’10. That’s a fair price, nothing special, and say what you will about Pierzynski’s decline in numbers this year (.309 OBP), I think he’s Ozzie Guillen’s kind of guy.
If for some reason you’ve never read about the Pierzysnki for Liriano, Nathan, and Bonser deal, I recommend a perusal of Tim’s full breakdown. It’s a good read.
