The Best Way To Describe Carlos Pena's Week
There have been a lot of random quotes going through my head regarding Carlos Pena over the last week. Of course I can go with the "Zoolander" quote that of "Pena, so hot right now." Another option is to go with the classic song "Feelin hot hot hot." But I believe the best way to describe Carlos Pena's last week all inclusive is by playing a game of NBA Jams. Here is Carlos Pena's last 5 games in a nutshell as quoted by the classic video game.
"From Downtown" - A Pena bomb on August 21st against Texas starts the hot streak off
"He's Heating Up" - Need 2 straight baskets to start heating up, and Pena is there with 2 homeruns against the Rangers on the 22nd.
"At The Buzzer, YES!"- An RBI walk0ff single in extra innings against the Rangers, driving home Evan Longoria
"He Can't Buy A Bucket" - The 3rd game in the Texas series in which the Rays get shut out
"For 2!" - Another huge homerun, this time a 2 run shot against the Blue Jays on Monday
"From Wayyyyyy Downtown!" - A 2-run upper-deck shot against the Blue Jays on Tuesday to give the Rays a 2-1 lead
"Boom-Shaka-Laka" - Pena's 2nd homerun and 6th in 5 games, another upper-deck bomb against the Blue-Jays Tuesday night. Dave Wills really should have yelled "boom-shaka-laka" when this ball was hit as there was no doubt.
After this last week, there is only one way to describe the way that Carlos Pena is playing.
"HE'S ON FIRE!"
It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure this out.
