I was disappointed we weren't in the running for Sabathia, but this is a nice plan B. At the very least, he's another high-character guy who might help mentor some of our young players.

It's safe to say the Royals were watching the WBC.

That's what I thought when the Twins signed him two years ago. Not a rewarding deal at all.

Dunno I think the guy can still pitch, IIRC in he was off to a great start with the Rangers something like 5-1 when they let him go.

Same with the Cardinals, Rangers and Yankees.

He's going to need a ride out to the mound each inning on a golf cart isn't he.

You're kidding right? The guy is a drunken fool. If by high you mean intoxicated from weed and by character you mean drunk then you're correct.

I have nightmares of an injury to Davies or something, and the Royals having to ask Sidney Pontoon to keep the rotation afloat.

Which he could, if the rotation were stranded out on the ocean. Not so much on the mound.

Whew...

We really lucked out on the injury bug. Plus, we've been equally lucky to sign a horse like Ponson and get him immediately in the rotation. As a #4, no less. We must be ****ing stacked!

To the ship!
