There goes the one redeeming thing about *Phone Company* Park, the garlic fries...Now Penny is going to eat them all!

If the Gnats call that "bolstering," I'd hate to see their definition of attrition.

Penny can't be much worse than Joe Martinez, however he can't be much of an upgrade either. I watched Penny's last few starts and his fastball is completely flat and he seems to have lost any confidence or control in his secondary pitches. Batters will continue to tee off on Penny, no doubt about it.

@rbnlaw: just think of the extra bolting they will need to do to the foundation of Pac Bell Phone Park
