:-° Pena sure faces some long odds there, eh?

I don't know if I'm buying into the local media hype or what, but I really like him as a good sleeper. Maybe not for the immediate future (until 2/3 of the OF is on the DL), but like slomo said, he's got unbelievable power and when he finally got consistent PT he was one of the best hitters the Reds had IMO -- which isn't saying much, but still. :*)

Quote from Cincy reporter:

''I've seen (Willie) McCovey, (Willie) Stargell, George Foster and Big Mac, all those guys, take batting practice. And without sounding like a whole bunch of hyperbole, he hits the ball as hard as any man I've ever seen.''

Dude has some POWER ;-D

There's good news and bad news with him. He's got the ability to hit for power like everyone says and may some day be a monster. The Bad news is that he has pretty poor plate discipline. In the dominican leagues this winter at one point he had 7 hr's in 90 ab's ;-D but 32 k's :-t .

He may struggle with batting average early in his career since he doesn't put enough balls in play.

I will keep my eyes open for this guy in my draft. For three reasons:

1) He is good.
2) He has power and we all know chicks dig the long ball!
3) I like the chances of any of the Reds OF going down in fromt of him due to injury. Those guys hang out at the Red Cross!
