If Penn were surely starting twice, then I'd just about put him in "money" status. The teams he would pitch against (COL, HOU) are awful on the road. But, since there's a chance Bedard could be back before the weekend, I passed on him and went with Victor Zambrano. I have the same feelings on him as you did.
It worked last week with Armas anyway.
From what I have heard, Bedard is out for another week or two. Is that incorrect?
He supposedly was going to do a rehab assignment this weekend. If he came back, I have to assume Penn gets sent back down. If that didn't happen or if it's not today, then he may not be ready to go for this weekend. If not, Penn would most likely start twice.
It's very frustrating...I really wanted to use Penn this week because COL and HOU are so, so bad on the road and BAL is such a great offense, but I guess I'd better stay away.
