    Willy Mo Pena

    http://arizona.diamondbacks.mlb.com/...k_ari&c_id=ari

    He is being considered by the Dbacks to be called up to DH this weekend in interleague play. He has hit 21 homers so far in Triple A he's tearing it up do you think it will carry over to the show.

    The guy has as much raw power as any player I've ever seen, but unless he's learned how to be more disciplined at the plate, I doubt he makes it stick.

    He'd be a good sideshow type of player for a bad, possibly young team to throw out there. Every once in a while the guy hits a 485 foot home run that leaves a vapor trail off his bat. It may not put too many butts in seats, but it gives the fans something to smile about if the team isn't going to compete otherwise.
    I may not be fast, but I sure am slow.

    Maybe he has given Jobu some of that new Spiced Black Kraken Rum!

    Maybe he needs some hats for his bats...

    I was sitting on the third base side of GABP, lower level, and Dickie Mo, I mean Willy Mo hit a laser beam home run over the left field wall. Only question was would it make it because it had no lift. A line drive HR.

    Very impressive.
