Rays - Signed Pena
Tampa Bay Rays - Signed 1B Carlos Pena to a 3-year contract worth $24 million.
You know what? I like Tampa Bay Devil Rays better. It has meter. So I think I’ll return to calling them that.
I’m shocked and appalled at this contract. The media’s told me that Scott Boras forces players to squeeze every last dollar for every year of every single contract and if the player doesn’t go along with his nefarious schemes, he ties them to the furnace in the basement, leaving them no choice but to subsist on basement bugs and their own urine. Falling back to earth a bit or not, with an MVP-type season in 2007, Pena accepting a buyout of his first year of free agency for $8 million, I have to cringe at what Saw-type torture Pena had to endure in order for Boras to grant him the right to do so. Either that or admit that Scott Boras is an employee of his client who serves the wishes of his client, but that’s way too logical to be true.
