Pena to Nationals

Friday, August 17, 2007

The Red Sox have traded disgruntled outfield Wily Mo Pena and cash to the Washington Nationals for a player to be named later. Pena was not living up to standards with the Red Sox batting .218 with 5 HR and 17 RBI in 73 games. If you recall my first post about Pena, I speculated that the Nationals would possible be looking to add him. The Nationals take a small risk in picking up Pena, and have to give up very little for him.
