His three-year, $18.35 million extension, signed on Oct. 3, 2007, and replacing the final year of a previous three-year deal in ’08, runs out with his $6.25 million salary for ’10. Top catching prospect Tyler Flowers is waiting in the wings, but Pierzynski won’t let such an uncertain matter distract from his primary goal.
“There’s nothing I can do,” said Pierzynski, who made a brief stop in Chicago last week to attend the Champions for Children’s charity event on Thursday night, hosted by Kerry and Sarah Wood for Children’s Memorial Hospital at the Palmer House Hilton.
“[Sox officials] will make decisions that help the team win,” Pierzynski said. “Tyler is a great kid, a great player and a great person. If they think he can help us win, I’m all for it. I just want to win games. If we go out and win, it all will work out in the end.”
