He Shoulda Labeled Him “Cheapskate”

A. J. Pierzynski…offered $100 to any of his new White Sox teammates that hit a home run off Brett Tomko.   Tomko, along with several other San Francisco players, labeled Pierzynski a clubhouse “cancer” last season, after the catcher joined the Giants as a free agent.

Pierzynski, obviously not working too hard to shed the whole "cancer" tag.  Handing off a C-note to the young, lowly, major league-minimum-making Joe Borchard after the game seems just a tad on the cheap side.  Why not just give him a pat on the back, AJ?  Back in the early 90s I made 100 bucks for eating an entire bottle of ketchup, straight, in 1/2 hour (I was jobless and just out of college, for perspective). You can be damn sure I would have asked for a hell of a lot more than a hunny if I had been required to hit a situational home run off a major league pitcher.
