Cashman is just throwing garbage at a wall hoping something sticks just like the Durazo signing and the looking at Hidalgo and all the losers this joke of a GM has run in and out of our bullpen the past 4 or 5 years.
He lucked out with Small and Chacon last season or they would not have made the playoffs. The law of probablity says you can't be wrong all the time, but Cashman has proven you can be most of the time. Ponson is not going to be any better than Chacon. In fact, I would think Chacon had a better chance of getting his head out of his butt than does Ponson.

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.
i just think that it's funny that this is the barrel that they're scraping at nowadays.

i just dont understand making a lateral move. i mean what can you possibly expect from ponson?

George re-signed Cashman for 3 years, for reasons only he knows. Don't need Gordon when Farnsworthless is around and we can sign him to a 3 year deal to go along with other rejects like Wright who he signed instead of picking up Lieber's option...and EVERYONE was against the Wright signing.
The simple fact of the matter is that the Yanks wil llikely be playing Golf come early October barring a Detroit implosion. There is no way this team is beating Boston as currently constituted. They have 1 good starter, 1 decent one, a 16 M number 5 in the 3 slot and 2 losers in the 4/5 slots. Their bullpen outside of Mariano is a joke for the 5th consecutive year...hard to be worse than last year, but it is with Gordon being replaced by Farsnworthless. Like this team is going to go on a 10 game winning streak having to endure 6 starts from RJ, Wright and Ponson?
And that is to say nothing of the OF mess with the injuries.
