Yeah, terrible move. We have zero guys to eat up innings right now and we acquired him for nothing, or virtually nothing. Let's all huff and puff about it.
ponson is averaging 4.2 innings a start.
Which isn't too much worse than what Jaret Wright or Shawn Chacon are averaging.
Again, they lose nothing.
yea whatever i was just correcting people who are saying he's an inning eater. all he's gonna do is hurt your bullpen. dumb move imo.
Hurt the bullpen? You mean like Wright and Chacon do?
You people are missing the point. Ponson, no matter how bad he may be, CANNOT pitch worse than the Yankees other options. The Yankees are trying to catch lightening in a bottle. Who knows, it might work.
It might not. The point is, they are in no worse shape than they were before they signed him.
