Sidney Ponson Career Screwup #117
Ponson implodes once again, this time dissing his teammates. The Rangers responded by shipping his ass back to AAA and will most likely give him his outright release. Quotes inside.
Rangers GM Jon Daniels
“I’m not going to get into details other than to say that we’re clearly trying to put together a team here in the true sense of the word … and based on recent comments and other such things, it was pretty clear that he didn’t want to be part of that,” Daniels said.
“That’s not something we’re going to tolerate. We want guys who want to be here, guys who are going to pull for their teammates and be proud of the organization.”
To his credit, Sidney actually put together a decent little season going 4 – 1 with a 3.88 ERA, which is no small feat when having to pitch in that band box in Texas.
A year back we had some fun with Ponson’s lifestyle and weight.
After dropping some weight and putting his career back on track he now pulls this.
Some people can’t catch a break. And others seem to create their own bad luck.
