Hank made some noise and the Yankees clobbered the Rangers. If only it were that easy. Brian Heyman has the story.

Sidney Ponson gave up seven runs. But Joe Girardi says his spot in the rotation is safe. This notebook also has updates on Bret Gardner, Hideki Matsui, Shelley Duncan and some signings.


Sir Sidney is 5-1, true enough. But here is what he has done in his last eight games:

46.1 innings
65 hits (5 HR)
19 walks
28 ER

A 1.81 WHIP is not going to get it done for very long. Opponents have hit .334 against Ponson since May 11. The Yankees are kidding themselves if they think this guy can stay in the rotation.
