In the past, the Twins have had some clubhouse cancers like Kevin Slowey, but I am curious why they were willing to ignore Pierzynski's reputation enough to offer him a two year deal knowing of his subpar catching skills. Also, do we have any current guys in the clubhouse that have a similar effect as AJ?

I feel like the Twins dodged a bullet while intentionally stepping out in front of a firing squad when I read all three articles.

AJ Pierzynski is no longer good at baseball.

I'm relieved the Twins didn't get him simply because Suzuki has been better on the field.
Do I want positive clubhouse guys? Obviously. But only if it doesn't come at the expense of on field production.
Also, if the Red Sox were in contention, AJ would still be on the team, they were just making the wise move by cutting bait with a veteran to give a young guy some development time.

Twins could learn a thing or two.
