    ESPN Insider says that the Pirates and the Padres have shown interest, but that information is about a week old. Even though, I bet it's either those two or the Nationals.

    I think Washington would be horrible for Pena till next year. I don't know the specs of the new park, but if its keeping with the pitching theme it will hurt Pena badly.

    Here's a piece from Bill Simmons Mail-Bag stat about sums up Wily Mo at this stage.
    Also, he's 25 and makes almost $2M.
    Here's his season numbers so far:
    AVG .221 | HR 5 | RBI 17 | OBP .294 | SLG .390

    Q: What do you consider to be a fair trade the Red Sox can make for Wily Mo Pena? My roommate and I were discussing it, and we decided that a cheeseburger would be fair. But not just any cheeseburger… we're talking a one-pound cheddar and bacon burger from Fuddruckers. We figure once we add on the tomatoes, pickles, relish, mustard, ketchup, jalapeños, nacho cheese and onions, we'd come out on top. Your thoughts?
    --James, Brighton

    SG: Um, you'd come out on top if you traded Wily Mo for a single-patty McDonald's cheeseburger with nothing on it. But I like the thought of Theo Epstein announcing the deal, then holding a news conference in which he eats the Fuddrucker's burger in front of the reporters and cameraman and just repeatedly says, "Mmmmmmm … . Mmmmmmm … mmmmm, this is delicious, it almost makes up for the fact that we effectively gave away Bronson Arroyo … mmmmmm … yummmy … "

    I disagree with Mr. Simmons here. He didn't have a bad year last year. Also, as you pointed out he is only 25. He has plenty of time. This is where the options thing makes me mad. Wily Mo would defenitly flourish with a year in the minor leagues starting every day.
