Can someone please explain to me how Ponson is still pitching in MLB. He makes Gil Meche look like Cy Young.

I hope Matt Garza has his cell phone nearby. Ain't gonna wanna miss his next phone call.

Come on Terry. Call Matt.

I think Garza is overrated but he is still a much better option than Ponson. I'd be embarrassed to write his name on the lineup card every day.

I'm trying to understand how he manages to find a job in major league baseball still, let alone as a starting pitcher for a contending team.

The Twins have an unhealthy love for veterans, which is why they always rely on them early. Garza, Perkins, Slowey, Baker, Swarzak all are better options than Ponson, and one of them will take Ponson's spot sooner or later.

Kudos to GiantsFan14 for the sig.

Messy messy start, did ok for the next few innings, errors by his teammates and Arod capped his night. He was all over the place tonight.

True, but I have a feeling that Perkins will be the one first recalled.

It seems to me that there's quite a few veteran pitchers who probably shouldn't be playing at the MLB level. I mean, how much worse would a callup from AAA do? And how much cheaper would it be for the MLB teams to bring up a minor leaguer and pay them the league minimum rather than give contracts to guys like Ponson.
