Tony Pena Jr. is better than Jimmy Gobble

The guy to your right here is Tony Pena Jr. He's a shortstop for the Kansas City Royals. He should really be a pitcher, because last night he did better than anybody on the Royals staff.

Why did Pena have to come in? (Detroit Free Press)

The Tigers had a number of hitting stars on a night when Kansas City left-handed reliever Jimmy Gobble was charged with 10 earned runs in the eighth inning, before infielder Tony Peña Jr. pitched a scoreless ninth -- including his strikeout of the Hall of Fame-bound Rodriguez.

Gobble, who was the last out in the seventh, allowed seven hits and four walks in one inning, throwing 45 pitches.

Mr. Gobble was absolutely horrible, and instead of heading back to the bullpen, KC decides to put Pena in. And what do you know, he throws a 1-2-3 inning, including a strikeout of future Hall of Famer Pudge Rodriguez on a sick curveball I think it was.

Even after a Royals five-run rally, it wasn't enough as the Tigers won 19-4, proving that I can not accurately predict Tigers games.

I first became familiar with Tony Pena Jr. when he played in the Atlanta Braves organization. Hated it when he was traded away cause he's developing into a nice shortstop.
