I suggest Angelos gets his checkbook out. This is the wrong union to try this on.

Ponson should not get a dime more from the Orioles. I dare any rational person to read the clause in his contract that led to his termination and say he didn't violate it about three or four different ways. Of course you're right about the MLBPA. I'm pretty sure they're only slightly less powerful than the mafia at this point (see also for further reference: steroids, collective bargaining, Kenny Rogers).

I read in the NY Daily News today that the Yanks are going consider offering him a deal. If they DID sign him, and they made the postseason, he wouldn't be eligible, right?

According to a page I found in an Google search, the deadline for postseason eligibility is August 31st. That may have had something to do with the timing of this.

But if he keeps them in the wildcard, or even helps them win the division, that's worth it for them, I guess.



In the real world, WWE believes that no matter what our race, religious creed or ethnic background in America, we all share the common bond of being Americans. American-Arabs are a part of the fabric of America, and they should be embraced by all of us.

Ponson is almost certainly going to contest this ruling so that he can continue to collect all or most of the ten million dollars owed to him through next year. I'd assume he'd have to drop any appeal if he went to play for the Yankees this season, and I'd also assume that he'd have to take a very hefty pay cut in his new contract. Given that, I doubt he'd end up with the Yankees (or any other team) even if anyone was interested.

If the Yankees DID sign him, and then made the postseason... I would be very surprised.

I can't wait to see what "resident Ponson hater" redsoxnation has to say about this.

In my mind, as long as the Angels DON'T pick him up, I'm happy.

You can take Rich Dauer who did next to nothing aside from play alot of years... Or you can take Roberto Alomar who tore it up for the 3 seasons he was in Baltimore... I'd take Robbie.
