From the Baltimore Sun...

Sidney Ponson didn't take the same flight as the other Orioles. He left last night for his native Aruba, where he'll be knighted tomorrow by the queen of the Netherlands. Aruba is a dependency of the Netherlands.

Ponson and former Orioles teammates Calvin Maduro and Eugene Kingsale - three of four Aruban players to reach the majors - will meet Queen Beatrix and receive the Ridder Van Oranje award in the capital city of Oranjestad.

The following post expresses the opinions of a raving Jerichoholic. He is biased, opinionated and bitter. You have been warned.

Well, good for Aruba. And good for the Orioles to be rid of Ponson for a day or two.

As of Monday, April 21 at 12:55 AM, the Boston Red Sox' Magic Number to clinch the AL East is 147. A combination of 147 Red Sox wins and New York Yankees losses will guarantee the AL East for the Boston Red Sox.

He's actually pitching well for once...



This is simply a reminder of the fantastic hypocrisy of many in Hollywood. They conflate robust criticism with censorship; they equate popular boycotts with government blacklists; they claim to be persecuted, while actually they have an amazing capacity to reach audiences other political activists can only dream of. And yet, when the slightest criticism directly affects them, they do all they can to shut dissent down. Instructive, isn't it? Industry honchoes who wouldn't have jobs without the right to free expression are only too eager to squash it when that speech dares to criticize them- Andrew Sullivan

This sounds like something that a player would demand in a contract negotiation. Sir A-Rod?

Sidney Ponson's only claim to fame will be his mention in Bill Simmons' "Reggie Cleveland hall of fame" for players whose names sound like they belong to one race, but really belong to another.

And to show that the Angels aren't the only team in Southern California that make boneheaded offseason signings, witness the Dodgers. ESPN.com - MLB - Pierre heads to Dodgers for $45 million WHY are they paying Juan Pierre this much money?
