Roch around the clock


The Kickoff

July 12, 2006|By ROCH KUBATKO

The St. Louis Cardinals are expected to place former Orioles pitcher Sidney Ponson on release waivers today, after first designating him for assignment, which would allow him to sign with another team tomorrow.

Anyone want to guess where he winds up? May I go first? Don't be surprised, shocked or amazed if Ponson signs with the New York Yankees.

That's all I can say for now. Just don't be surprised.

Or shocked.

Or amazed.

OK, maybe amazed.

A lot can happen before tomorrow, of course. The Cardinals could change course and decide to wait out the 10-day period before turning him loose. The Yankees could sign somebody else for their rotation.

But I'm submitting the Yankees as my pick.

Just out of curiosity, what kind of reception would you expect Orioles fans to give Ponson if he returned to town with the Yankees?
