It's hard to argue with WMP:
I want to be traded. I want to play. They know I want to play. I'm surprised I wasn't traded before the deadline. ... They want me to perform, but how can I perform when I have just a couple of at-bats, then they take me out, and I don't play again for days? They said I would be given a chance to play, but it hasn't happened. ... I am not a guy who has caused any trouble, but I want to play.Check out Pena's home/road split this year:
