If I were a betting man, I think he pitches very well and gets the win. However, I'm in a roto league so I'm not going to risk it most likely. Penny is going to be one heck of a pitcher this year though.


Yeah becuz my common sense is telling me not to start him, I really feel like throwing him in there. If I were responsible I would have sat Vazquez today but something just nagged at me to start him. I wonder if that will get to me with Penny before Sunday. :-?

RynMan....I might make the plunge and start him if you will....I need someone to live/die with. :-b

If we hear about a pitch limit between now and then however, I won't be starting him. Too little chance of a win.

I just read that if the weather is too cold they aren't gonna activate him yet and that Elmer Dessens will be getting the start. I'd leave Penny on the bench regardless of what happens..

Let's give it a couple of days to see if we hear about pitch counts....I could easily be convinced though. Also, we can check what the Colorado forecast is to make sure he is actually going to play. I wonder what they mean by "too cold". :-?

Damn we're crazy.

True, and we could look like complete fools as well. :-b

Oh well, I'm in if you are...at least it would give me a game to watch Sunday. Denver's forecast is a high of 61 with a 30% chance of rain on Sunday. I guess we'll just have to assume that 61 isn't "too cold". The game starts at 2PM, so it probably won't be all that cold.

Apr 21 Penny (biceps) will be activated from the 15-day DL in time to start Sunday's game against the Rockies, the Dodgers' official site reports.

Recommendation: Penny will have an 85-pitch limit for his start. If there's cold weather in Colorado, the Dodgers might still choose to go a different route for the start.


Thats from Yahoo. Pitch limit, u still game?

Ah damn, I don't know if it's so smart now. 85 pitches would likely bring him to about the 6th inning....possibly more if he's really sharp, though he probably won't be given it's his first start. Perhaps we should just be patient and enjoy him over the rest of the season instead. :-b

Mo, my good man. I could have told you that its not a smart move starting a guy in Coors after a 6 month DL stint, but thats not the point. If we pull this off when everyone has said not to because its the "smart" thing to do, we will be treated like kings! B-)
