BASEBALL: Like A Brad Penny

Joy of Sox looks at the flier the Red Sox are taking on Brad Penny, who will presumably take over Bartolo Colon's role on the Sox. I guess given Boston's experience with Josh Beckett they are currently more enthusiastic about fragile ex-Marlins than Yankees fans are to see AJ Burnett walk in the footsteps of Carl Pavano.

I'm good with that. There's little risk and little cost. If he pitches in a few games and does well, great. At some point during the year every team needs a 6th or 7th starter to buck up for a few games. If we hadn't cut Kevin Cash (and thank goodness we did) there could have benn a Penny-Cash battery. Yeah, Penny for the price is way more appealing than Burnett and HIS price.
