Not as bad as I thought, but for some reason, I just don't have the best feeling over Ponson.

The Sox have been trying to get him for a while but it hasn't fallen through. I don't know why but something must stop the potentiality of the trade each time, from either the Sox side or the Orioles angle.

Ponson looks like a good pitcher, but I just don't know. It's a visceral feeling, but I'd rather have another lefty in the rotation.

If Ponson continues to pitch like he has this year, though (which, unless I'm mistaken, are better numbers than he usually averages), I would have no problem with him pitching for the White Sox.

:smile:

Funny how many players have above ave seasons in the final year of their contracts before becoming a fa.

I don't know if this has ever been posted but heard it yesterday from a fella who knows some people who would know...

Rumor was that Ponson was ours for PK until they got wind of the mysterious hip injury that may or may not exist...

I get the same vibe everytime I look at Ponson, too. Kinda reminds me of Jaime Navarro with less hair. :(:

Starting pitching is not a need.

What exactly do you see as our needs? I say you can never have enought starting pitching, particularly when they are 10-5 for a team like the Orioles.

This is the first year in his career Ponson hasn't been a disappointment. And, as stated, this is his contract year.

Jerry likes to skip his 5th starter as much as possible. I'd take Garland over Ponson in a heartbeat. Garland has allowed 2 runs or fewer in 7 of his last 9 starts. If we aquired Ponson, that means one of the two would be having a lot of days off between starts.

The last need on this team might be another arm in the bullpen. And since Kenny didn't pick up any salary in these two trades, that might be possible.

If the O's really wanted PK I'd think they would have demanded that their medical staff and/or specialist look into PK's physical health as a condition of any trade.
