Both Freel and Pena showed last year some of what they are capable of when given opportunity. BOTH of them have had their playing opportunities squeezed the last few years in favor of young Dunn with the presumed "great potential".
Sure. And Jim Thome should bench himself so Jason Michaels can get more AB for the Phillies.
Particularly amusing that Pena was a "low average/high strikeout" hitter as well last year. In fact, if you were making any effort to be consistent, Pena is exactly the kind of guy you'd be including on your "Players to Hate On" list.
Yet, you support Pena while continuing, without reason, to indict the most productive offensive player on the Reds.
