Post-series thoughts: O's, Mariners kiss sisters

This was a series where maybe I should be happy with a split on the road, but I'm not because the losses were because of annoying things: not executing with runners on base, and Sidney Ponson.

Ponson went 5 2/3 big, fat innings, giving up five runs, all earned. I believe I have seen just about enough. His ERA is back up over six, and at this point, he is not helping with anything. Designate him for assignment, trade him to anyone willing to take him for whatever they'll give you, make sure he has an "accident," whatever. Enough. Uncle. I can't take any more starts from him.

But whatever, to hell with Ponson. There's good news coming. We're on our way to Minnesota, and we're bringing a friend with us to this party.
