i noticed the other day that brad penny was back pitching in the major leagues. i have pretty good memories of penny as a dodger - he had the best season of his career for the club in 2007. here's a bowman sterling relic card of penny from that year
anyway, since leaving the dodgers following the 2008 season, penny has pitched for the red sox, giants, cardinals, tigers, giants (again), fukuoka hawks (japan), and now the marlins. penny, of course, started his career with the marlins and pitched for them until he was traded to the dodgers in 2004. i don't know how long it will last this time around (he's got an era of 5.84 in three appearances), but i salute his efforts to remain a big leaguer. i just hope ned doesn't get too desperate for arms this weekend.
