Chilly Willy

Willy Mo Pena is the definition of a five o’clock hitter.

Two hours before the game the guy smashes baseballs to the moon, but come that first pitch, it’s a if he’s holding a toothpick in the box.

In seven seasons he’s a career .253 hitter with 77 home runs.

Not bad considering he’s never played more than 110 games in a single season.

Problem is, Willy Mo isn’t a situational hitter and his outfield defense is atrocious.

Yet, his 6’3 frame and 215 lbs of muscle have kept scouts celebrating his potential as a legit power-threat for nearly a decade.
