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

    "Released largely of his inability to pitch deep into games and a refusal last month to embrace his transfer to the bullpen, Ponson has attracted significant interest from the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox and could accept a bid from either club if he clears waivers."

    As a Sox fan...NO THANKS! He's flamed out in 2 cities, and is a certified nucklehead. Why would he be successful in Boston or NY?

    I think the Yankees would have a interest in anyone who could go 5 innings .

    He's a selfish headcase, and he can't get it done in the NL. Would either team be that desperate?

    Sounds like a hot head too if he punched a judge.

    In his defense, wasn't he drunk and on the beach and did not know who it was that he was picking a fight with? He didn't go into court and punch the judge.

    Yes, he didn't realize he was assaulting a judge. But having a history of dui's and an assault charge seems to qualify a guy as a knucklehead.

    I sure hope we don't sign him. I see little reason to think he'd be any better than Chacon or anyone in our bullpen.

    Exactly. We know all about the Yankees' 5th starter troubles. But don't forget Boston is in a very similiar predictament. After Schilling and Beckett (26 HR), you have a knuckleballer in Wakefield and then what? The rookie Lester (1.55 WHIP) is somehow 4-0 and then Johnson.

    If all he costs is money, sign him, throw him out there and see if it works. If it doesnt, no harm no foul.

    I wouldnt be mad if they signed him.

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

    The biggest problem is that Ponson pitched like a 2 hit shutout vs. the Yankees a couple of years ago. 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. But the Yankees have been the DFA kings the past few years. Considering he's got "experience" in the AL East, and Maz had him in Baltimore, it wouldn't shock me to see the Yankees try to sign him, give him a couple of starts to see if he can help, and if (when) he can't then go out on the trade market and see what type of pitcher you can get back. Torre mentioned something about Wilson has the start "for now" in an interview somewhere, I wonder if something is up or he's talking about the Arubian Dough Boy possibly coming in.

    I'm sorry, but Sidney Ponson had weight problems, DUI problems in Aruba, and is very inconsistent throughout his career. I'll pass.
    It's not the 27 World Championships that drive the New York Yankees. It's the 28th.
    Every year is The Year. Go Yankees.

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

    hmm... i mean if it costs nothing then i guess why not.
    But this certainly doesn't give me that "warm and fuzzy" feeling.

    the thing that scares me is "Released largely of his inability to pitch deep into games." That doesn't seem too helpful. I guess he does have better stuff than both Chacon and Wilson though.

    .... whatever
