one of the most anticipated SP call ups this year, next to Cole Hammels, may be happening

Sidney Ponson was removed after three innings Sunday due to right elbow discomfort.
Ponson pitched three scoreless innings before departing. With Adam Wainwright doing to so well in the pen, the Cardinals would likely call up Anthony Reyes to start if Ponson is going to miss time. May. 7 - 2:53 pm et

I hope you are in an extremely deep league, having to use Lohse. Are you in a 25 teamer??? He might be one of the five worst pitchers in the league right now....
Basically I'm complicated.
I have a hard time taking the easy way
I wouldn't call it schizophrenia
But Ill be at least two people today

If that's OK

And I can go on, and on, and on...

But who cares?

Ailing elbow forces Ponson from game
Eds: UPDATES with quotes, details; ADDS byline.
By STEVEN WINE
AP Sports Writer
MIAMI (AP) — Even though he gave up a chance at a victory, St. Louis Cardinals right-hander Sidney Ponson was glad he spoke up when his elbow began to bother him Sunday.
The Cardinals led 2-0 when Ponson left the game against the Florida Marlins after three innings because of discomfort in his right elbow.
“The smart thing I did is I told them, and not to go out there and try and be Superman,” Ponson said.
He was to be examined by a doctor Monday in St. Louis and likely will miss at least one turn in the rotation.
“Anytime you’ve got an elbow that barks, it’s something to be concerned about,” manager Tony La Russa said.
Ponson, who’s off to a 3-0 start, threw 42 pitches. He gave up one hit, walked two and retired the last five batters. He also earned his first career RBI with a 50-foot dribbler down the third-base line.
The Cardinals used four relievers to complete a six-hitter and won 9-1.
Ponson said his elbow first bothered him in the second inning, and he told trainer Barry Weinberg after coming to the dugout. The problem continued in the third.
“We decided to play it safe and take him out,” Weinberg said.
Ponson experienced a flare-up in his elbow last year with Baltimore, but it was quickly resolved, Weinberg said. The right-hander signed a $1 million contract with the Cardinals after being released by the Orioles last September, in part because of alcohol-related problems.
The Cardinals’ schedule will allow them to rest Ponson without calling up a pitcher from the minors, pitching coach Dave Duncan said.
“We have two off days in the next 10 days,” Duncan said. “Hopefully we can work it out and go with just four pitchers.”


doesnt sound too serious but they wont know for sure until sometime monday.

No there isn't. I don't like his injury risk, but I do see why others would like him. I even drafted him in the last rounds of few deep leagues early on. He pooped on me and I'm bitter I guess. Have fun with him. AT, I know what it feels like to have a poor opinion of a guy who has shown good potential, but gets hurt often.

God damnit. I typed up like a 4 paragraph laugher of a response to this and then I slipped and hit the wrong button on my keyboard and deleted the whole thing. I HATE when that happens.

Short Version:
You should hear my rants about guys who have actually burned me PERSONALLY, not just guys I've avoided and think everyone should as well. My Rich Harden piece is going to be a doozy next year...

But for Reyes, who cares if he got hurt and you got burned by him ya know? Anyone you take in like the 3rd to last round of your draft will either pay off fairly well, end up on the DL, or head to Free Agency within a month. And sometimes all 3.

But I know what you mean. I'm going to use a cheesegrater on myself for John Patterson pretty soon.
