    More talent than Chacon or Kris Wilson for sure

    He's pitched OK in the AL East - not great, but better than most teams' #5 starter

    Maz had him in Baltimore - I'll defer to whatever Maz thinks as far as his character (or lack thereof) and his clubhouse presence.

    He's practically free, so why not take a flier? Chances aren't too good of a miraculous turn-around, but neither were the chances of the Small-Chacon success last year.

    Well these are the two teams throwing out garbage on the fifth day anyway, why not give pudgy Ponson a try. He has to be at least as good as Kris Wilson......

    He would be a problem with the Sox. He'd force them to add another table to the clubhouse buffet.

    Seriously, I don't think he'd be a good choice but I could see Boston picking him up for free if just to pitch against NY because he had a few good games against them in the past.

    I just remember that game a couple season ago where the Yankees rocked him. As the pounding continues, the guy starts laughing. No thanks.

    Hopefully, we're just trying to look interested to drive up the price for the Sox. I don't want any part of this guy. Isn't he also supposed to be a pain in the neck in the clubhouse?

    Ponson pitching for the Red Sox in August and September might actually have a positive affect on the Yanks' ability to overtake them for 1st place!

    I think I'd rather count on Pavano --that should tell you how I feel about Ponson

    GO RED SOX !! SIGN HIM !!

    No way Boston picks him up...I dont think its in their budget to add a third caterer for the post-game buffet

    This is not a guy, or the team, to try that. Ponson stinks and as we saw with Pedro and Damon, Boston is a team that puts a top dollar they'd pay a player and not cross that line.

    *sigh*

    My first ever game at Yankee Stadium. Sat up in the upper deck and felt like an ant under a magnifying glass it was so damn hot. Mariano got rocked, too.

Ponson is a lazy ass who sucks and has had one decent year in a career full of crap. I really don't see the point in putting effort toward replacing a guy accused of having a bad attitude and unable to last 5 innings (Chacon) with a guy known for having a bad attitude and can't last 5 innings.

    Hey! Kris Wilson was supposed to play in the AAA All Star Game!!!

    I do think he could have some bullpen value.

    Ugh..I don't even know if I can write anything substantial in this thread. The only comment I really want to add is: NO!

    Re: Say it ain't so...Yankees interested in Ponson (per St. Louis paper)

    Well if we get Ponson, we can at least console ourselves with classic Beach Boys:

    Aruba, you drunk-a, who would-a thunk-a,
    he's drinking, not thinking, punches judges, stinkin
    We've beat him, we need him, now that someone will release him, oh why don't don't we

    Sign him to a one year deal,
    He's sure to make fans squeal,
    New York's where he wants a job,
    to drink just like a fat slob

    let's sign up Ponson-oh no!

    Eh... I really dislike the guy but he might be better than Wilson/Chacon.
    “I mean, people knew that Brown was out there, and that Randy was ornery all the time. And Pavano is whoever he is. But if you’re their manager, you can’t go out and write about them like that.

When that happens, the Yankees never forget it and figure if that talent is there, they can get it out of him to perform again. That, however, ignores Ponson's body of work, which is as bad as his physical body is.
    Carl Pavano says hi.

    And in doing so, he strains his vocal chords and goes in the 60-day DL.
