Tony's ESPN column today is a great read on facing these two aces.
FYI: Gywnn got more hits off Maddux than any other pitcher.
I was ecstatic to see Tony go deep off Maddux one year at the Murph when I was in SD for the Comicon.
Then I can write a washing bill in Babylonic cuneiform, And tell you every detail of Caractacus's uniform; In short, in matters vegetable, animal, and mineral, I am the very model of a modern Major-General.
I think it is safe to say that the Yankees grabbed Ponson just so the Red Sox (who also put in a waiver claim) couldn't get him - not that I can see why anyone would want him......The yanks & sax are both "playing without a net" this season.
