Hey ObviousMan….If you go back to the game thread you’ll see how I posted that I was hoping that The Yanks would pull him in the 7th in order to save some innings for down the road. Granted the game was a low pressure game for him however he’s on an innings limit and this game was in the bag……..So I’m hardly looking to pin blame on anyone ….
“You people hated Pena when he was on the Yankees”
I loved the kid and felt so bad for him when he was sent back down. I always said I hoped that he’d get picked up by another team after he was DFA. It was clear that he loved playing for the Yankees and he did get some nice hits for the Yanks when he played. The problem is that people tend to forget the good when one not-so-good thing happens, when it comes to the secondary players.
Neal or musty may get an opportunity now. But I’d only like to see then brought up with regular playing time. I’m one of the few who doesn’t mind seeing ben Francisco as the 5th of over the youngsters because I’d rather Francisco rot on the bench and musty, Neal, almonte play every day.
