JD, the Red Reporter says that Wily Mo doesn’t want to go:
“I haven’t heard anything about that, and I don’t want it to happen,” Pena said. “I want to spend my whole life with Cincinnati.”
If Pena is traded, I hope to see some real value in return. Wily Mo is one of the true assets this team has, in terms of trade value. His potential is through the roof, Dan O’Brien better not deal him for some magic beans.
Since I mentioned Red Reporter, note this preview from JD that has been posted over at Baseball Primer.
