The last 2,726 major league hitters to face Sidney Ponson have batted .316 against him and have also earned 218 walks. (That’s a H+BB/PA rate of .364.) Ponson has no pitching skill left. Yet, someone will probably give him a chance in 2009. It’s happened for the last 5 years. What’s one more?
Let’s just hope that we’ve seen the last of Sir Sidney the Yankee. Twice is more than enough. Three times warrants firing the G.M., in my humble opinion.
