By now some of you have noticed the poll over to the right. What do you think about the Yankees signing Sidney Ponson and starting him tomorrow night against the Mets?
There’s no reason to list all his transgressions here, but it’s a lengthy list. The Rangers publicly accused him of being selfish when they released him on June 6. This was no whisper campaign, this was the GM and manager standing up and saying that Ponson was somebody they didn’t want on their team for character reasons.
That’s very unusual for any team and any sport.
So where do you stand? Does this bother you or do you only care about what a player does between the lines?
