yeah...but we couldve had his 17 wins and CHEAP had we just resigned him to the minimum, LIKE HE OFFERED because he owed it to the Chicago Fans. Colon? took the most money, oh well.
Ponson ...... May see how much of a JOKE this franchise is, and go Elsewhere

How about because the Sox have no viable # 4 or 5 starter?

Wells? Come on Hangar, the guys is nothing but a sleazebag. Didn't he jerk around Arizona this past off-season? He would have gotten an offer from the Yankees and would have been long gone. If you're going to believe David Wells' word, you may as well believe JR's really telling the truth when he cries poor.

Might have to get Kris in here on this one...

You are correct you spoke very highly of the Cubs.. JOKING!!, but your follow up was along the lines of... "not that it would be much better playing for the Sox since they don't pay... " :D:

Just wondering out loud but if we were going to sign Ponson, why not add an extra million to the offer and get Maddux in here... The Cubs are offering between 7-7.5... what if we offer 8 or 8.5 to Maddux instead. I think he could do wonders for our young guys, and we'd steal a little thunder on top of it...

Maddux for two years I get excited about, Ponson for 2-3 makes me worried.

Don't fear.. Sidney isn't coming here. And Maddux is, quite loudly, on the record as saying he does not want to play in the AL.

I know why, because He knows He'll get his Butt Kicked
in the American League. I take back what I said in another Thread about sox signing him and me renewing
