Yanks sign Ponson.


Recommended Posts

I hope the O's do a tribute to Him...send him some corona's to the visiting clubhouse. For the video tribute they can have him just turning around to the out field sky trying to find the ball leaving the yard.


He might just fit in with the evil ones:angryfire:

It is hopless for him now.....He has crossed to the dark side!:vader:

I'm actually a little worried. Besides the fact that he is a huge idiot he was pitching pretty well. I can only hope that the sir sydney we all know and love will show up for the yanks,,,,,
This is the first step in making my nightmare come true.

1. Yanks sign Ponson.

2. Yanks deal for Bedard.

3. Ponson/Bedard/Mussina win World Series together...:puke:

LOL I was waiting for these reactions.

This is how my Cub fan brethren reflexively view any comparable signing by the $%* Cardinals. Whatever dreck they sign off of the scrapheap seems suddenly to pitch like Pedro or hit like Bonds.

Whenever a desperation signing like this it happens, there's not so much snickering as a sense of imminent dread.

    • Do we know what his velocity was today? I know he doesn't light up the gun but was he at his normal? 
    • Longterm he’s probably that missing RH SU/MR that we’ve been looking for since the Fuji trade.  It’s probably Suarez vs Ramírez vs Tate for 1-2 bullpen spots. Wells and one of Irvin/Means could be in the bullpen mix as well.  Depth is good to have. I wouldn’t sleep on Ramirez either. Elias has shown a knack from adding relievers through trade or waivers. 
    • There's not a single high level prospect on the team he pitched against tonight and even the one out he got was crushed
    • Let’s tap the brakes on his move to the bullpen. His stuff plays and he can get outs. Best of all, he doesn’t walk anyone. He challenges hitters and gets weak contact. With our defense, I’d rather him give up the occasional double or flared hit to the outfield than to see walks. Keep him in the starting rotation until he proves he doesn’t belong. Wells and Irvin both have experience in the pen and frankly for Irvin, though I love him, has a real tough time throwing strikes at times.    anyway, let’s see what the old dog can do.
    • I could see Suarez sticking in a bullpen role long term with the movement on his fastball. Also he might be able to throw a 2 to 3 more MPH harder not having to worry about trying to pitch six innings. The Orioles have done a good job finding pitchers who weren't expected to do much in recent years and it would be cool if Suarez is another find.
    • I mean, heres where we really find out if Holliday is cut out for the majors and if he has the character to fight through major adversity right off the bat right?  Saw a good point that there was a guy previously that started 4 of 55, and that was ole #8.  Mike Trout didnt get his batting average up to .200 until May 31st of his first season.  Ideal? Absolutely not.  But when the franchises all-time hits leader started with the same slump its something to pay attention to.
    • Going 1 for 25 is not hard to do. I would imagine many HS Senior players could do that if given 25 at bats in the big leagues. Not saying Holliday is not worthy, just how bad going 1 for 25 is. Had someone not been on 1st, he could be 0 for 25. I would like to see him more aggressive early in the count and more protective late in the count.
