For those who put stock in Penny's public display of self-analysis, this should be uplifting: "I'm pretty close. I felt pretty good. My mechanics felt fine to me, everything's going well - my velocity's there, my strength's there, it's just a couple bad breaks tonight and we lose the game."
"Uplifting"? If this as good as it gets, then Brad Penny should be sitting, traded, waived, released, or whatever. Penny should not be going back on the mound for the Sox because he simply SUCKS! It is a small sample but he was not projected (PECOTA pegged him with a 5.18 E.RA.) to be that good to begin with. Plus, the Sox have better options down on the farm right now and on the DL for the summer.
