Meet Your New Ace
The Yanks signed Sidney Ponson to a minor league contract, moving quickly to replace their injured ace. When asked about the signing, Cashman responded, "Who?" You may remember Ponson from his brief stint on the Yankees in 2006. Or, if you ever got into an unprovoked fight in Aruba during the winter months, he's probably the guy they arrested over the incident. It is being said that Ponson may pitch on Saturday in place of Giese. Personally, I'd rather see Giese. As much as I don't want to deny Cashman the pleasure of DFAing this guy for a second time in three years, I really don't see how this helps us. He hasn't pitched terribly for Texas this season, he's just been a terrible human being for them. I'm sure New York City will make him a better person though. What do you guys think? Giese or Ponson?
