Well if Ponson isn't your idea of a big name, then don't expect a big name because he certainly is Kenny Williams' idea of a big name.

I think the Sox will go out and acquire some starting pitcher through Free Agency this year. If anything, they will be able to acquire pitching through trade with the remainder of their 1997-2000 pitching prospects prospects.

Then I hope they're swingin' with their non-pitching arms, as I don't think either could break glass with their fastballs anymore.

kenny will give sirotka a cortizone shot a day and create a new gimmick for the ball mall, "guess which day mikeys arm falls off"

if you show up to that game, you get a free dunkin donut with your ticket stub.

It's sad that the Sox use this tactic as a marketing ploy. Just build a good team. I don't want a washed up big name player to be signed as a last ditch effort to make the fans happy.
