Custom Card of the Day: Pena Edition
This guy just got DFAd. So I'm gonna talk about him.
Every guy has one of those players that they hate simply because they only hit well against their team. Ellis Burks was like that, because he'd hit .250 against the rest of the league, and .350 against the Yankees.
Carlos Pena was like that during his tenure with the Rays. Specifically last season. The first few Yankees-Rays series', he would hit, like, 9 homers against us, and then he wouldn't perform at all for the rest of the season. And it was infuriating, because you'd see him for the rest of the season hitting pathetically, and then he'd come back to Yankee Stadium and beat us down.
Thankfully, he hasn't played the Yankees at all this season, which means he did pretty terribly this season. Of course, a lot of that has to do with the fact that he plays for the worst team in the league, but also, he's at the end. He doesn't have much left, and he sank pretty low just by joining the Astros. So now he's without a team, and he might not get picked up (unless the Yankees are really friggin desperate), and now it's sad cause he doesn't get to hit against the Yankees.
So yeah. That's me prattling about Carlos Pena for a few paragraphs.
Coming Tomorrow- Probably that Brewer I promised yesterday.
