It looks like the player we all love to hate is joining the Boston Red Sox for the 2014 season.
The news was first reported by Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com.
The left-handed hitting Pierzynski spent the 2013 season with the Texas Rangers where he played in 134 games and hit .272 with 17 home runs and 70 RBIs. He could platoon behind the plate with David Ross, who hits right-handed.
Whether you like Pierzynski or not, he's part of the team now. As he long as he contributes to the team, I'm sure the angst will go away.
UPDATE: According to Buster Olney of ESPN, the deal is worth $8.25 million for the one year.
