Just b/c a kid has electric stuff, doesn't mean he will do well in the show... Ponson may give up 5 er a game, but he usually lucks out and wins for some reason. There is a chance Reyes gets called up and Ponson is sent to the pen or down to Triple A but there is also a chance McCarthy will start for Chicago White Sox... just not a good chance.
I hear ya.. Ponson will post his basic 11-14 type season with a high 3 or low 4 era, eat up innings and barely make it through the season. I think Reyes may be brought late like last year unless someone go's down with an injury, then we will see him sooner..
