Pierzynski wrestles with idea of new contract

Taking a break from his second career, A.J. Pierzynski indicated his desire to sign a long term deal with the Sox.

"Obviously, I want to come back and I would like to be there for a long time. Hopefully, it will work out and we will get something done and we will get something done long-term."
He also was understandably a little conflicted about the Rowand trade.
"I'm disappointed, obviously, because Rowand was one of my best friends and I'm going to miss him," Pierzynski said. "At the same time, it's part of the business. I was traded. I feel bad for him because he's never been in another organization. It's hard for the first time. At the same time, we got Jim Thome and if he's healthy, it's as good as it gets."
