It happened 10 years ago today.

I believe Chicago Cubs catcher Michael Barrett embodied the sentiments of pretty much any MLB fan who was partial to a team which didn't have A.J. Pierzynski on it's roster. Heck, you could also include in the anti-A.J. emotion any MLB hitter who stepped into a batter's box while Pierzynski was catching.

Ozzie Guillen, Pierzynski's manager while with the Chicago White Sox, summed it up best: "If you play against him, you hate him. If you play with him, you hate him a little less."

Upon receiving a 10-game suspension, Barrett should have declared "That was for you, MLB and fans!"
