Re: Quiet on the WMP front.
If you ask me - he needs to be in Reds camp getting ready for the Reds season.
Look at it this way: WMP says in the offfseason about he wants to play this season: The best thing they (the Reds) can do is to play me or trade me because I no longer want to be on the bench ... but for next season they are going to have to give me a permanent position or trade me to another team.
What do the Reds do? They move Sean Casey and open up an outfield slot for him.
What does Pena do? Instead of coming into camp and being as ready as he's ever been for the opportunity he says he wants (like, say, working on his defense), he's gotten just a few plate appearances in the WBC.
Who's holding up their end of the bargain?
The more I think about it, maybe this is why the Reds brought in Scott Hatteberg - he can play first, and the Reds can have an outfield of Dunn/Griffey/Kearns.
