So I'm waiting on some stories and the playoffs have started. The TV is on and I'm watching.
Here's what I've seen out of the Nats' next first baseman:
*He struck out looking in the first inning with the bases loaded.
*He just struck out looking again.
*Mr. Gold Glove failed to pick up a one-hopper from Evan Longoria. Didn't save the E - isn't that the main reason the Nats' "brain" trust allegedly wants this guy over Dunn?
Carlos Pena hit .196 in 144 games.
Why not just keep Willie Harris and play him at first base?
Dude hit .282 in 2007 and has fallen off dramatically every year since.
Are the Nats really thinking of signing him and then trying to sell us on it being best for the team's "long-term interests?"
Please. Do we look stupid? Don't answer that because with those Curly W's on our head year after year, we probably do.
I can't believe there's a "baseball person" around who thinks this guy is a better option.
Plus, he's older than Dunn.
I've made it clear I won't go back if the Nats don't re-sign Adam Dunn. I will remain a fan but the team won't get any more of my money.
If the Nats sign Carlos Pena, I may give up the whole fan thing altogether. There's another team about 40 miles further up the road. I already have a couple of hats and shirts and I really like their ballpark.
