Sidney Ponson signs with the Long Island Ducks

Mar 16, 2010, 4:20 PM EDT

John Smoltz was forced into the broadcast booth, but everyone’s favorite Knight of the Netherlands/problem drinker/starting pitcher, Sidney Ponson, has landed a job. He has signed a deal with the Long Island Ducks of the Atlantic League.  OK, I suppose they would have taken Smoltz over Ponson if the former would have made himself available, but the point is that Ponson will be throwing live pitches this spring and Smoltz won’t be, and there’s something wrong with that on a cosmic level.

Is this the beginning of Sidney Ponson’s epic comeback?  Fans of all 30 teams certainly hope not.

    That’s Sir Sidney, to us lesser human beings.

    Don’t you have to have a career first, before you can attempt a comeback?

    Shouldn’t that be the Long Island Iced Teas?

    Enough with the trash talk…he was a great pitcher and definately has insight to the game. His personal life will not effect his broadcasting. Give the guy a chance their are currently worse players out there that haven’t been trashed like sidney has been.

    And on a cosmic level, Livan Hernandez will be throwing live pitches in major league games, too.
