Free agent pitchers were expensive as all get out this year (Kris Benson signed for like $10 mil a year!?!?! I mean, KRIS BENSON!?!?!). Since the O's went overboard on free agents last year, they didn't have any money left to go after an ace this year, so they're basically stuck with Ponson, in whom they made a terrible investment last year.
