The Pitch: Tony Peña accused of adulterous affair in divorce suit.

Kelly J. Locke, a Kansas City North realtor who works in Gladstone, has confirmed to the Pitch that he subpoenaed former Kansas City Royals manager Tony Peña to testify in his pending divorce trial because he believes that Peña had an affair with his wife, Monica A. Locke, and that the relationship contributed to the marriage’s breakup.

and Peña’s attorney is Edward Ford III?...Is there no end to this beaver shooting madness!?

Thanks to Bill Pecota’s #1 Fan

I wonder if Tony put his patented leg-extended crouch to good use?

At least we got it out of the way early.

Or he could have used it to trip the cuckholding hubby as he burst in the bedroom.

Plate Blocking as applied science. I hope Eric Byrnes' wife never cheats on him.

I didn't realize there was another Pena thread in which somebody already cracked the leg-extended crouch joke. Now I'm sad that I unknowingly duplicated a joke.
   6. Chris in Wicker Park Posted: May 12, 2005 at 11:57 AM (#1331636)
Well, at least someone in the franchise knew how to score.
   7. fracas' hope springs eternal Posted: May 12, 2005 at 02:15 PM (#1331782)
Ironic that Peña's wife is named Amorous.

Oh wait, that's Amaris. Carry on.
   8. IronChef Chris Wok Posted: May 12, 2005 at 02:16 PM (#1331784)
Larry Bowa would never cheat on his wife. And he owns a home of his own!
   9. Larry Bowa Posted: May 12, 2005 at 02:36 PM (#1331823)
Both true!

And I'm now encased in the cloak of broadcasting repectability!
   10. rr Posted: May 12, 2005 at 03:34 PM (#1331925)
Now we know what Pena means when he wants his teams to be agressive.
   11. More Dewey is Always Good Posted: May 12, 2005 at 04:07 PM (#1331990)

The husband would be cuckolded. Pena would be doing the cuckolding.

/grammar policing.

Sources -- for which I cannot vouch, but it's fun to kick a guy when he's down -- tell me this case is just the tip of a hefty iceberg. But then, baseball managers have never, as a group, been paragons of virtuosity.
   13. Larry Bowa Posted: May 12, 2005 at 04:24 PM (#1332020)
Rob,

Can I have your thoughts on me bringing Larryball to your favorite team? I think I could get them back to respectability in about 3 years, especially since I don't have Ed Wade to drag me down.

Your pal,
Larry

How dare you accuse Larry Bowa of immoral behavior. He is now and shall forever remain three times the man you are. (Well, if you quit ESPN, he'll only be twice the man you are.)
   15. bunyon Posted: May 12, 2005 at 04:30 PM (#1332030)
Well, at least someone in the franchise knew how to score.

Turns out the affair was never consummated. It looked good for him, she was a little drunk and lying topless astride him. But, just then, he called for the bunt and the inning was over.
   16. Hendry's Wad of Cash (UCCF) Posted: May 12, 2005 at 04:33 PM (#1332039)
How come this sort of thing never happens to Dusty Baker? All I ask is one little scandal to ######### him out of the dugout. Wasn't there a tax thing -- whatever happened with that?

Royals fans get all the luck. (I'm just hoping my sister's name doesn't surface at some point.)
   17. Larry Bowa Posted: May 12, 2005 at 04:35 PM (#1332044)
It is interesting, I think, to note the wild disparity in Pena apparently choosing to go for the longball and the big inning in his personal life, but professionally preferring to play small ball and go for 1 run at a time.

One would think that a person would be of a like mind in both facets of his life...
   18. bunyon Posted: May 12, 2005 at 04:47 PM (#1332066)

Larry, I'd welcome your presence in the Kansas City dugout. You have a track record and I'd like the chance to take a break from 20 years of wondering whether or not the manager is potentially competent and learning on the job or just a buffoon.

I'm skeptical that this particular team needs a fire lit under them (that a third of the pitching staff has yet to demonstrate a mastery of the AA level is a bigger issue than desire) but a watching the Royals manager go nuts watching Emil Brown play baseball holds a certain short-term appeal.
   20. rombuu Posted: May 12, 2005 at 05:30 PM (#1332143)
Watching Larry Bowa manage this team, while not a guarantee of success on the field, would certainly be entertaining, which is more than you can say for the Royals the past few years.

I'd perfer to see Larry Dierker is the position myself. As long as all this stupid Frank White talk ends.....
   21. The Buddy Biancalana Hit Counter Posted: May 12, 2005 at 05:32 PM (#1332147)
As long as all this stupid Frank White talk ends.....

Considering the current makeup of the Royals roster, coming to Kansas City from Wichita would be almost a lateral move.
   22. RoyalsRetro (AG#1F) Posted: May 12, 2005 at 05:39 PM (#1332163)
I think the talk concerning Frank White is promoting him to play second base again, not manage.
   23. Benji Posted: May 12, 2005 at 05:50 PM (#1332190)
Another place for Bobby V to resurface! Give him a young team and anonymity and watch them grow. And Bud, don't let any ex-WalMart execs buy teams.

I'm not sure, but I think Rob may be trying to tell us Pena is into plus-sized women . . . .
   25. 1k5v3L Posted: May 12, 2005 at 06:03 PM (#1332226)
I wonder if Pena ever drilled holes in the dugout walls...

"Ah, what do you expect from those ESPN guys? They all got their degrees out of a pick-up truck."

Didn't Rob drop out of college? I thought I remembered reading something about him getting a job as James's assistant after being part of a crew that worked on his house, or something like that.
   28. Crispix Attacksel Rios Posted: May 12, 2005 at 06:15 PM (#1332255)

That's what Monica A. Locke said, but she settled for Peña.

UPDATE: I'm still waiting by the phone, enjoying a mid-day Bushmills. I've started working up some mock lineups. Will let you all know what happens if/when I get the call.

Ah, what do you expect from those ESPN guys? They all got their degrees out of a pick-up truck.

In fairness to Rob, his use of virtuosity was probably correct anyway.
   31. rombuu Posted: May 12, 2005 at 06:26 PM (#1332280)
For those of you not in the KC area, Larry has been on the local radio stations all the time the past few days... surprised he's had time for a mid-day pick me up.
   32. Larry Bowa Posted: May 12, 2005 at 06:29 PM (#1332284)
rombuu,

How do you think I get through all those appearances?

I can see the print ads now:

Larryball: Catch it!
   33. Craig in MN Posted: May 12, 2005 at 06:32 PM (#1332291)
Can't they just be paragons of virtue? Paragons of virtuosity, even if correct, sounds like a new Bush-ism, and paragons of virtuousness isn't any better.
   34. My guest will be Jermaine Allensworth Posted: May 12, 2005 at 06:33 PM (#1332293)

Larryball: Win or go home!

   36. bunyon Posted: May 12, 2005 at 06:35 PM (#1332301)

Doesn't matter, either way. He went to Kansas.
   37. My guest will be Jermaine Allensworth Posted: May 12, 2005 at 06:38 PM (#1332306)

When managers were managers:
69 YEARS AGO TODAY (May 12, 1936):
After the Dodgers beat Dizzy Dean, 5–2, at Ebbets Field, Cardinal captain Leo Durocher and Casey Stengel agree to meet under the stands and the Dodger manager gets a cut lip in a brief fight. The fight was the result of much bickering about calls during the game and some pre-game bantering.
   41. Larry Bowa Posted: May 12, 2005 at 06:59 PM (#1332331)
Larryball: **** you, we're gonna win this thing!

Larryball: Get off your *** and cheer!

Larryball: Only Winners Need Apply!

Larryball: I'll throw the chairs, you just sit back and enjoy!

Larryball: On this team, we fight first and ask questions later!

Larryball: We came, we saw, we kicked some ****ing ***!

   43. Loren F. Posted: May 12, 2005 at 07:24 PM (#1332361)
At least all of Peña’s stories about his time in 'Nam were true.
   44. RoyalsRetro (AG#1F) Posted: May 12, 2005 at 07:35 PM (#1332383)
He also never had a threesome with Dave Magadan's wife...that we know about.
   45. robneyer Posted: May 12, 2005 at 07:38 PM (#1332390)
Yes, my use of virtuosity probably was correct. But if so, it was an accident. I knew that was probably wrong and I should have looked it up. I mean, it's not like there's a dictionary two feet from my right hand at all times...

By the way, I heard yet another story about Pena this morning. I wonder if the Kansas City newspaper will do any investigative reporting. I also wonder if they even should.
   46. E., Hinske Posted: May 12, 2005 at 07:47 PM (#1332408)

Make up a fake name and tell us about it.
   47. Craig in MN Posted: May 12, 2005 at 07:55 PM (#1332420)
Please, God, let there be a story about Pena and Jose Lima's wife.

There'll be no ****ing around on my watch. All energies will be expelled on the ****ing baseball diamond!
   49. The Matador Posted: May 12, 2005 at 08:13 PM (#1332451)
Hmm, when I get divorced I want to put out an allegation that my wife slept with some well known MLB player or manager so it becomes a public news story and I can look like a fool from coast to coast.

The more I think of this, the better it sounds. I wonder if I can convince my wife to accuse me of having an affair with Cindy Crawford? And three playboy playmates, at once.

This guy just didn't think it through.

I'd like this to grow into a team- if not organization-wide sex scandal. They aren't untalented, they're just worn out from #######. And it burns when they piss.

Damn you, Jose Lima, and your addiction to herpes ridden strippers.

omigawd!!

a baseball player cheated on his wife???!!!!

this means that barry bonds is not the only one who ever did?

All this paragon of virtue talk puts me in mind of Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum:


I, Pena Gloriosus,
A man among men!
I, paragon of virtue,
With glove and with pen!
I, at bat the most admired,
In field the most inspired,
In love the most desired,
In dress the best displayed--
I am a parade!

This is one case where I can somewhat claim 'second hand' at least experience. When Tony played in St. Louis, my secretary, who worked evenings as an usherette behind the Cardinal's dugout, became Tony's girlfriend. He tried (unsuccessfully) to get her to take some road trips with him. He also paid for her to have her nose "fixed" (she was a very beautiful blonde, but had a crooked nose).

At the time, Tony's wife and kids stayed in the Domican Republic during the season....

OK, seriously, I can't believe everyone cares so much about this story.
