Rally Beer?

The Boston Red Sox have been scrutinized recently for players drinking beers in the clubhouse during games. According to A.J. Pierzynski of the White Sox, this isn’t that uncommon.


Pierzynski commented on the situation Wednesday morning, “Yes, absolutely I have before,” Pierzynski told “The Dan Patrick Show.” ”Sometimes you’re just really struggling and you just say, ‘Hey, you know what, I need something to calm me down and let’s have a beer.’ A couple of us will do it together, and sometimes it works out". “It’s just, sometimes you just need a rally beer. If you’re in extra innings and you’re in about the 15th inning and you really need to get going again, that sometimes works for you.”


The White Sox catcher did say this wasn’t an every game occurrence, and that he would just take a few sips.


Although the way the Sox played this past season, that is one tab I wouldn’t want to pick up since the Sox seemed to need a rally or pick me up in just about every game.
