Pena hasn't had an extra base hit in almost a month, strikes out once every 3 at bats, and mediocre SP make him look foolish. Meanwhile Chris Shelton, a 1B-DH at AAA is hitting .323 with 8 HR, 35 RBI, and a .979 OPS. Gee, what do you think should be done?
Trammell and/or upper management still chooses to stick with Pena, but this can only go on for so long. Of course, Pena shouldn't be fantasy relevant in ANY leagues at this point, so this is a bigger deal to us Tiger fans than most others.
