For those of you who haven’t heard, Wily Mo Pena is back. For those of you who have never heard of Wily Mo Pena, he’s a below average outfielder and even worse hitter but has tremendous power.

Arizona fans will take it any way they can get it. If a nice loogie on the top of Wily’s dome is all he needs to send a ball into orbit, so be it.
