Rays’ Pena breaks 2 fingers, done for season

58118188When I think of Carlos Pena I think of Jason Giambi. A pure slugger that can’t hit for average. Pena is batting in the .230’s but leads the AL in HR with 39 and has 100 RBI’s. Unfortunately he will not have the opportunity to win the AL Home Run title as two broken fingers have ended his season. Mark Texieria of the Yankees will almost certainly take that title as well as most RBI’s. It will be a three horse race for the AL MVP ¬†Texieria, Mauer, Jeter. My vote goes to Jeter but unfortunately I don’t have a vote.

His whole broken finger thing got me thinking, who else could the Rays get in the off-season that could match his production for cheap in case he is unable to play at the same level again after having two fingers snapped in half.

My thought is Shelly Duncan. He is basically the same guy and I’m sure the Rays have enough minor league talent to get him away from the Yankees, Just a thought.

Anyhow Carlos sorry to hear about your broken digit but a 95mph fastball to the hand is no joke. Even worse they said he swung so he didn’t even get to take his base. Now thats Bad Luck.
