It's no secret that Penny's shoulder has been a problem off and on all year. Apparently, it was worse than ever today. "In the bullpen today, I knew I probably shouldn't have went out there," Penny said. "But that would have put the team in a horrible position."
Penny got shelled and is now undergoing an MRI on his shoulder. When will athletes learn that, in a majority of cases, playing through pain is stupid? I know it must be incredibly hard for them to sit games out, but come on guys, eventually you have to see the pattern here right? Missing 30 games now is always better than missing 100 games later.
