I was at that game.
I hate to see Wily Mo traded, but what really makes the trade suck, IMO, is getting Arroyo in return.
Maybe Arroyo is all you *can* get for Pena right now... play him a whole season in LF, which is supposedly what clearing the OF logjam was going to be all about, and if he produces an even somewhat quality season his worth suddenly becomes much higher than a freakin' Bronson Arroyo.
If Denorfia becomes the everyday starter in CF w/ Junior moving to LF then I can stomach it a little better...
on a sidenote: How bad will Boston's OF defense be with Manny & Wily Mo?
