What To Do With Brad Penny?

Dylan Hernandez of the L.A. Times raises the question today: what should the Dodgers do with Brad Penny?  The 30 year-old righty has been lousy this year, and he’s back on the DL with shoulder woes.  In recent years he’s shown a trend of fading in the second half, though he was respectable in ’07.

The Dodgers face a $9.25MM club option with a $2MM buyout.  Is Penny worthy of a one-year, $7.25MM deal?  I probably wouldn’t guarantee that money to him, but I’m not a doctor.  Penny has had back, blister, rib cage, forearm, elbow, biceps nerve, and shoulder problems over the years.  He was never worked particularly hard by his managers.
