Little known fact: Dan Shaughnessy thought it was a terrible idea to start him that game. (Bonus fact: this link  is to an interview between Shaughnessy and Larry Lucchino.) (Dan Shaughnessy; Boston Globe)

A few opinions on A.J: First off, LEAVE A.J. ALONE! (Eric Wilbur; Boston.com)

Second: It was probably for the best! (Jen McCaffrey; Masslive)

Next: He was terrible, but it was all part of the plan! (Brian MacPherson; Providence Journal)

Finally: IT WAS ALL HIS FAULT! (Rob Bradford; WEEI)
