I know that Pena commented upon the arrival of Burgos that he would be given a chance to win and keep the job. It would not surprise me to see Affeldt eventually end up back in the rotation. Nor would it surprise me to see a situational ninth inning rotation when he returns from this latest ding.
A three year old with average intelligence has a better chance of mastering Rubik's Cube than any of have of figuring out Pena.
