Pena's Batting Average over Rolling 40 AB Periods (2007-2010)

To follow up on my comment on Tommy's post today, this scatter plot shows Carlos Pena's batting average across every rolling 40 at-bat period since joining the Rays. While Pena is at his lowest point during his tenure, he has flirted with the .100 mark four other times during his time with the Rays. 40 at-bat periods do run from end of the year into the new season. Keep in mind the difference between .050 and .100 is 2 hits over 40 AB. Given the amount of lefties the Rays have faced over the past two weeks, I am no more concerned today than I was any time since Pena arrived in Tampa Bay. The walks are still coming in bunches and the hits shouldn't be far behind.
