ESPN is now reporting that the Blue Jays are pursuing free agent first baseman, Carlos Pena. I’m not a huge fan of Pena’s but he does drive in runs and gives the Jays some pop at first base which would be a nice change! However, Pena gets lost at the plate for long stretches of time and doesn’t hit for average.
What I like about the possibility of Pena becoming a Blue Jay?
Knows what it takes to succeed in the AL East
He has been to the playoffs
His name isn’t Lyle Overbay
We’ll see if there is any truth to the rumours soon enough.
