Royals catcher Brayan Pena said on the Royals pregame show that the Alberto Callaspo trade "surprised everyone."
"It really surprised everybody. But this is baseball. This is why it's such a great game because things like that happen. We wish him nothing but the best and the guys that we get from the Angels. We hope the best for everybody."
Of course if Pena had been reading SB Nation Kansas City or Royals Review, he wouldn't have been surprised. The Angels offering the Royals this trade was first reported earlier this week.
