Ponson retired seven of the first eight batters faced before Alomar's groudner back to the box. As soon as he touched the ball, Ponson began shaking his hand and immediately was removed from the game and replaced by Tim Byrdak.

Not a good time for this to happen. It would have been easier if it was just 3 days later. Maybe they're going to think about upping the ante for Burnett now?

Just when you thought his value couldn't get ANY lower.:tongue:

Uh oh ! That's going to put a crimp in his off season slapping of judges and jet skiing.

Nice to see Sandy getting some playing time, at least. It's too bad Ponson was injuired on the play.
