Joe Girardi said he wanted to sleep on it. But we suspect Sidney Ponson will start against the Red Sox on Wednesday, not Dan Giese.

“That was a very big start for us,” said Girardi, who praised Sir Sidney’s ability to throw strikes low in the zone.

Said Ponson: “I’ve got to make the most of it. It is a fresh start.”

Darrell Rasner, Giese, now Ponson. Brian Cashman is patching up holes like one of those guys in the chop shops across the street from Shea Stadium. But until the trade market yields something, that is what he has to do.

It’s not as simple as calling the 29 other GMs until somebody cracks. You think the Yankees are alone in this dilemma?

That’s it from Queens. Time to head home. We had 2,000+ comments today, thanks so much. Yanks-Mets at 4 p.m. tomorrow. Andy Pettitte against Johan “We could have him for Kennedy and Hughes, damn you Brian Cashman” Santana.
