As I'm sure you've figured out, I loved every minute of my AZ spring training trip.  Well, not every minute.  I absolutely dreaded replenishing my supply of things to get signed every night.  Every minute of my time spent at Camelback Ranch, however, was fantastic!

A few players stood out on both ends of the "fan-friendliness" spectrum.  They are as follows:

The Good

Jake Peavy - Jake signed for everybody every day I was there.  The first couple of days he was doing multiples.  By day 5 he was down to one per person, but he was still making sure to get everybody.

John Danks - John is as friendly and personable as ever.  I didn't notice if he was doing multiples for everybody, but he made sure to take care of me after giving him some photos to give to his mother.  He is by far my favorite current player, and that is just as much for his personality as his excellent pitching.  It should be noted that his brother Jordan is just as fan-friendly.

Chris Sale - Chris signed everything put in front of him, adding inscriptions upon request.  There were a few guys that were handing him baseball after baseball, and Chris signed every one on the sweet spot without complaint.  When I put my 16x20 in front of him, he asked me where I wanted it signed.  Great guy.  I only hope that he stays that way after his career takes off.

The Bad

A.J. Pierzynski - A.J. probably signed too much to belong on the "bad" section of this list.  His attitude while signing, however, put him squarely at the top.  He would bitch and moan any time somebody had the nerve to ask him to switch pens.  He was about to sign my A&G mini card in a fat silver paint pen... I'm sure that would have looked just great!  I asked him to please use my pen.  His response was an exaggerated sigh.  After signing my card in blue sharpie, the next item handed to him was a team ball with many ballpoint signatures.  Of course, the guy asked him to switch pens again.  A.J. responded with something along the lines of "Jesus Christ, does your pen get you THAT much more on eBay?"

Ozzie Guillen, Joey Cora - Grouped together for their extreme ability to ignore all autograph requests.  Well, Joey ignored them.  Ozzie always responded with "Later", or "I'll be right back".  Of course, "later" never came.

Paul Konerko - Like A.J., Paulie did sign quite a few autographs.  By day 4, he utterly refused to sign for me.  Every day I was there, I had the best spot to get autographs.  It got to the point where Konerko would walk up to where I was, and take the item of the person next to me, and begin working down the line from there.  I assume he thinks I'm a dealer, which cracks me up.  I'm getting CARDS signed!  He thinks I'm making a living selling his signed cards for $10 a pop on eBay?  Yet he signs all day for the kids that work for dealers.  Does he really think these little kids can afford baseballs, jerseys, bats, etc?

The Ugly

Kenny Williams - Kenny ignored all autograph requests, with the exception of day three.  When I asked him to sign on day three, he actually walked over to me and signed my baseball.  Of course, several other people stuck out their items in hope of a signature.  Kenny signed one other item, then mumbled under his breath "I don't have time for all of this shit" and walked away.  What a great guy!
