According to ESPN, Carlos Pena has resigned in Tampa for 7 million in 2012. Throw that on to the 5 million the Cubs owe him, Carlos Pena is going to make a little bit of change in 2012.
I think this is a great sign for a team like the Rays. They add immediate pop and defense to their lineup and have the ability to now hit like a “big boy.” I’m a huge fan of what’s going on in Tampa because they’re getting some real good value for pretty cheap. I have no doubts Tampa is going to contend again in 2012, and maybe get over the hump and win themselves a title.
