Did the St. Louis Cardinals make a mistake in signing Sidney Ponson?

The St. Louis Cardinals capitalized on another misstep by the Orioles management. Ponson is still a quality pitcher ... his human frailties are obviously things the Orioles can't handle. Every other team in baseball seems to be able to handle these issues - especially contenders.

Well, they certainly signed "the King of Beers." The Cardinals just better hope Sidney doesn't find the line for tours at the Anheuser-Busch plant.

Not really. Think about it. In St. Louis the beer is cold, the cell blocks are warm and the fans are some of the most forgiving in major league baseball. A perfect fit for this Oriole exile.
