Some said that just to be annoying, Ponson would pitch well tonight and force management to give him chance No. 687 instead of trying to deal him. It's a Ponson-type idea. Just when you think he could get sent packing, he'd up his game a little, and then of course go back to being Sidney Ponson.
Instead, in an attempt to barehand a liner, he had his thumbnail ripped apart and left the game after two and a third tonight. Get used to Big Sid, he ain't goin' nowhere besides maybe the DL.
