This just in... Brad Penny Sucks

Though he's not allowing the football like totals of Chien-Ming Wang, Brad Penny is trying. The corpulent hurler has only managed 17 2/3 innings in his four starts. His ERA matches his bloated physique at 8.66. And somehow, infuriatingly, he's managed not to record a loss. John Smoltz, where are you?!

Trivia question, as provided by Jason Stark of ESPN. Who are the four (correction six) active players with a .300 lifetime batting average and 2000 career hits? Don't cheat by looking up the stats. I'll post the answer tomorrow.

Chipper Jones, Manny Ramirez, Jeter, and I would have to guess Todd Helton is the 4th.

And take it easy on Brad Penny, sometimes the numbers don't tell the whole story.

Vlad is the last one. The good news about Brad Penny is the Sox have a lot of good arms.

Yes, in this case the numbers don't even show how bad he's actally been. He should be 1-3 not 2-0.
