Arroyo > Pena
So whattya gimmie for a *Ramiro Pena*? This is the kind of shit the Giants do that I hate. Just because this cat has been in the big leagues at some point in his career they’re going to start him. Note to Giants brass: shitty utility guys do not belong starting for any length of time, ever.
Arroyo isn’t going to get called up because of the tired, played out excuse we’ve always gotten: He might not be ready and we don’t want to damage his psyche. Excuse me but fuck that. I’m tired of treating ballplayers like they’re PTSD victims. If you call him up and it turns out he’s not ready you just tell him that and send him back down. He’ll be fine. It’s not like he’s going to cry a puddle of tears and be ruined forever.
Give Arroyo a shot. You know he wants it. And he’s earned it.
