FIND A STATION Dan Patrick Show
Tuesday: Deshaun Watson, Patrick Mahomes, Mike North, Daniel Jeremiah

Texas Rangers catcher A.J. Pierzynski joined the show to talk about the World Series and much more.

Dan asked Pierzynski if he thinks MLB should try to end collisions at the plate. “I’m 100 percent against it,” Pierzynski said. “I’ve been run over a million times. If you do it right, I think you’ll be OK. At some point, you can’t be a tough guy.  … You gotta fall.”

Pierzynski said that he’s never gotten injured because he knows how to get out of the way when he needs to. He said catchers get hurt because they keep their feet glued to the ground.

A.J. talked about how much he wants to pitch one inning before he’s done playing. He said that he wouldn’t call off the catcher’s signs — because he know how annoying that can be.

Pierzynski said that catchers aren’t great hitters because they’re working too hard in the field and don’t have time to focus on hitting. They get mentally tired by the end of the game.
