A.J. Pierzynski would like to continue his playing career next season.
Pierzynski, who will turn 38 in December, was released by the Red Sox after struggling for three months, but the Cardinals picked him up and used him as a starter while Yadier Molina was hurt. His best days are clearly behind him, but Pierzynski should be able to land somewhere at least as a backup. "I want to play, obviously," said Pierzynski. "Physically I feel good. I still think I can contribute. I don’t know what will be out there, but I want to play." Oct 19 - 10:12 AM
