Brad Penny came here under scrutiny as a guy who might not be able to deliver and he’s been the subject of tradebait talk for weeks now. But alls I know is this: if he can pull off another win tonight against the Nationals after two solid starts against the Yanks and Marlins, Penny will officially pass Brad Hamilton on my list of “Cool Brads.”

And that’s really what it’s all about, isn’t it?
