Let the Pitching Wars Begin

Both the Yankees and the Sox made moves for pitching.

The Yankees picked up Sidney Ponson. Will he be allowed to pitch in Toronto? Isn't he on the run from Canada or something for some crime? Anyway, this guy is terrible. They may have caught lightning in a bottle last year with Chacon and Small, but Ponson is truly awful. No lightning to be had...

In a different type of move, the Sox purchased the contract of Craig Breslow from Pawtucket. I touted this guy in an earlier post (where I was talking about bringing up the farm guys)...His numbers look great and methinks that Seanez and Tavarez will be seeing much less game time.

Now this guy is not a proven major league commodity, but Ponson has proven he is NOT a major league commodity.

Round 1 winner remains to be seen...

Who's next on the list?

  1. And with Ponson I like that he has truly sucked against BOS.

    It sure looks like he will be a bust, but then again the Yanks got a magically season from Small last year. And Leiter pitched that decent game against us last year after he was basically dropped by FLA.

    It reminds me of the Simmons quote something like - the Yanks could pick up a hooker in times sq and she would bat 350 with a few walk off hits.

    Well at least that was the case before they sold their souls to the devil.
