Weapon of Mass Production
Wily Mo Pena just hit a ball to left field at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City.
Wait, let me clarify.
He hit a ball to the absolute back of left field, about 45 rows up, into the hot dog stand. A photo (click on image for better resolution) from a home run tracking website had it at over 443 feet.
Royals PR staff had it at 445.
NESN's Tina Cervasio had it at 451 (for those who listen to her in-game segments and questions during "Terry's Take," you know she's a quantum physics major... so she's probably right).
But regardless...holy crap. Ball go real far.
I think he might be worth a look-see in the 5-hole. Youks, Loretta, Papi, Manny, Wily, Lowell, obligatory Red Sox catcher, Gonzalez, Coco.
(yes, Coco in the nine-hole. I'm working on some sort of SID-type useless stat/game note on Coco's inability to bridge the gap to Papi/Manny when he leads off an inning...)
Ok, that's it for now.
Your humble and obedient servant,
