The St. Louis Cardinals seem to be a smart franchise. They've been in contention in the National League Central for the past decade and have built themselves a solid pitching staff from other teams' scraps (Ryan Franklin, Chris Carpenter, Adam Wainwright). But then they go and sign Brad Penny for 1 year and $7.5 million. Seriously? Dude had an ERA/WHIP of 6.27/1.63 in '08 and 4.88/1.40 last season. I just don't get it. I'm not saying Penny is horrible, but it just doesn't make sense to sign him for that many cents. Hahaha, get it? Penny...cents, I'm so f'n clever!
Penny allowed 6 hits over 2 innings of work yesterday leading to 3 runs. It's spring, so nobody really gives two squirts of piss. However, I think Red Bird fans can expect to see more shitastic outings like this for the 2010 campaign. And besides, look, the douche wears Affliction gear.
