Default Peņa released, 4 others outrighted

http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2011/1...ase-pena-.html

Josh Kinney, Shane Lindsay, Kyle Cofield and Leyson Septimo have been outrighted to AAA, and the Sox have requested unconditional release waivers for Pena.

Good. Pena sucked, especially his last two seasons here. Although, it didn't help that Ozzie kept trying to use him as a long reliever.

Looks like Brandon Allen had some pretty nice years in Arizona's and Oakland's systems. Be nice to have him right now.

1. Ozzie is gone.
2. Those are Allen's minor league numbers, what is your point?

Can't say I'll miss any of these guys. Kinney and Lindsay got lit up late last year. Pena had been getting lit up since the second half of '10 and then he got hurt.

This is going to be the new "Fire Ozzie", and it's going to get nearly as annoying.

That, along with the "taint" of Ozzie.

Wait...what do you know about Ozzie's taint?

Edit: Forget it - I don't think I want to know.

Why? So we can say we have a legit prospect in the minors?

Good riddance to Pena. I don't even know why I stuck behind him for as long as I did.

He's a 25-year-old minor leaguer who is hitting a whopping .210 in 367 career MLB at bats. He may turn out to have a decent career, but I'm not losing any sleep over him.

Kenny already improved the Sox by releasing Pena. Good news.

Dude's 25 years old and in the Pacific Coast League. He'd better be mashing.

Edwin Jackson looks like Nolan Ryan and Dotel looks like Cy Dotel with the Cardinals, figures.
