    No way. The Yanks had him a few years ago and sent him to the minors, then released him. He strikes out alot and hits for a low avg. There are plenty of players available that would be a better option.

    If the Yankees can get Carlos Pena within 48 hours then it's a done deal but if not then Carlos stays with the Cubs until another deal comes up. However he said that he was staying with the Cubs so right now Pena might not be leaving after all and if he does go to the Yankees the chances of that are very slim.

    If they need a good DH.. why would they go after Carlos Pena? If you're being nice to him.. you can say he's an average hitter. Over the last 3 years he has a batting averages of .227, .196, .223 and strikes out 160 times a year. He still hits a few homeruns.. but nowhere near enough to justify those averages.

    Just use Montero as a DH, he can perform at least that well.

    Rumors are Cubs are planning on keeping Pena. Yanks need pitching help anyway.

    "I'm staying with the Cubs." Is the quote from Carlos Pena. So.... no.

    They don't need him- he hits home runs, but rarely does he hit much above .200, and he strikes out a ton. That doesn't really fit into what they need.

    It is unlikely that a deal will be made, but you never know what might happen.

    don't really know him that well but if he can get the job done I would welcome him. I will research him to see what his game is like though.
