I'm a Hispanic and I will say that the signing of Pena didn't have any impact on how I felt about the acquisition. I didn't cheer because they signed a Hispanic and I'm sure a lot of other Hispanics can argue the same sentiment.
I'm glad we didn't sign Berkman! Are we the only team in the AL that needs a DH? There is a reason he isn't on a roster right now. He had health concerns that aren't worth the risk to signing him to a new deal.
I may not be too ecstatic about the ML level if talent but players like Singleton, Springer, Cosart among a few players in our farm system have me excited in the direction we're going.
