"I said what I had to say about A.J., and it came from my heart," Washington said before Tuesday's game. "After that, I have no more comment."

When AL manager Ron Washington was asked if there was one player he was most disappointed that didn't get in the All-Star Game, he was quick to mention A.J. Pierzynski. But Pierzynski isn't happy that Washington didn't pick him.

"I feel bad for Pierzynski," Washington said Sunday after the team was announced. "The guy's having an outstanding year.

He beats you mentally, he beats you physically. So I feel really bad for Pierzynski."
