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."
