UPDATE, 12-5-07 at 11:02pm: According to Nats GM Jim Bowden, they’ve talked with Pena about an extension but no agreement has been reached.
FROM 12-5-07 at 8:35pm:
ESPN’s Enrique Rojas reports that the Nationals have signed Wily Mo Pena to a two-year extension worth $7MM. He’ll get $2MM in ’08 and $5MM in ’09. The deal buys out one year of free agency.
Is Wily Mo worth it? Hard to say, as his development has stalled a bit after spending a few years as Boston’s extra outfielder.
