I don't know, it is a site to discuss sports, not airline safety.....maybe we should take it less seriously?

Ha! Or rent him my house either! I agree with you 100%. He was big in the few post season games he played for us and was great during the White Sox World Series run.
LOVE AJ through and through. I cheer for him every chance I get. The guy is a pest, and a competitor and he gave his all in a Twins uni just like he does in a Chisox uni. He even helped the team by being traded for good returns at an opportune time. He's said in the press that he'd be favorable to return to MN in the future. I'd take him back in a heartbeat. I might not want to rent a house from him...

He is overrated as a player IMO, get more props for playin everyday.....but it wears him out IMO.
Yet he's hit as many or more homers than Mauer every year of Mauer's career except '09. And Pierzynski has gone deep five more times than Joe this year at age 35.
Not intended as a shot at Mauer – that's not his game – but I'd say A.J.'s ability to hit double-digit home runs almost every year into his mid-30s is a pretty good indicator that he's not been worn down by catching regularly for over 11 years. Sort of amazing, really. I think it's pretty hard to make the case that he's overrated.

Found it. From Wikipedia:
On May 28, 2007, in a game versus the Minnesota Twins, Pierzynski twice ran down the first base line with his feet on the inside of the base, possibly nipping Twins first baseman Justin Morneau with his spikes. Twins manager Ron Gardenhire was furious with the umpires, which resulted in a long tirade. However, he was not ejected. Pierzynski denied any attempt to step on Morneau.
And here's the link from mlb.com for this reference.
AJ said "I'll do it again if I have to"
