Astros To Sign Ponson?

Wednesday, June 11, 2008

Although Sidney Ponson has had off the field problems, he would make a great addition for the Astros. The Astros pitching has been holding its own as of late, but they certainly can't last the whole season. Adding Ponson, who is 4-1 with a 3.88 ERA, would give them a solid back of the rotation starter with experience in the National League. The hitting is strong and will continue to hit, byt they need pitching to come through in August and September. Oswalt and Backe will hopefully be consistent for the Astros all season, but adding Ponson for the rest of the season should help them somewhat.
