    Good to see that the tough economic times have not had a severe impact on Mr. Pena’s bank account.

    If healthy, I’ll bet Carlos launches 30 plus balls into Wrigleyville.

    But will he crack the Mendoza line…..

    I think this has the potential to turn-around quickly for Pena, playing in a very favorable home ballpark for hitters…..but really, $10MM is no drop in the bucket.

    That’s alotta dough.
