Brad Penny’s days in a Red Sox uniform appear to be over. The funny thing was the Red Sox had no intentions on releasing Penny, it was actually his choice. “I asked for my release and I got it,” Penny told The Herald. Why could this be? Possibly he want to join the NL again or possibly scratch this year and start on a clean page next year. Anyways, with the loss of Penny, i think the Red Sox will only get weaker.
Tonight (Friday, August 28, 2009) Toronto’s Scott Richmond takes the mound against Boston’s Josh Beckett. I think the Red Sox better watch out for Toronto’s Travis Snider. He seems to enhance his game play at Fenway Park. No starting lineups given yet, I will update as soon as I do.
