One can speculate a number of reasons, but the actual reason is because he's fucking hilarious.

This is Juan at Dodgers photo day. While the pitchers walked around in a little clique and waved and Nomar was shooed along by security, Mr. Pierre was the life of the party. He was dancing and posing and making his GQ sexy face. When we asked him why he was walking around with his pants over his socks, he immediately pulled his pants up and posed again. I love this guy. I won't go so far as to say I love his throwing arm, but hey, he's working on it. A for effort.

Oh yeah, and because he got hit by a pitch to win the game. So what if it hit the ground first? Ball's still in play. We still win. Cubs still lost. Hurrah!
