Penny now a free agent

As expected, Brad Penny has gone unclaimed and is now a free agent.

He was not especially good for the Red Sox (7-8, 5.61) but he is still throwing 95. Do you think the Yankees should make a play for him?

I would say no — unless Sergio Mitre’s bruised right arm is an actual issue. Penny would be smart to go the John Smoltz route and retreat back to the National League.

UPDATE, 4:09 p.m.: Penny signed with the Giants.
