Sidney Ponson will make his second start of the season this afternoon against the Royals, looking to build on a strong performance last week against the Twins.
Sidney Ponson is still in baseball? Yes, yes he is. I must have lost track somewhere after his random time in St. Louis.
Sir Sidney will square off against Zack Greinke (1.25 ERA), as Zack looks to improve on a 3.27 career ERA in Arlington. With a victory on today's getaway day the Royals can begin claiming huge chunks of territory in Oklahoma. We'll start in Tulsa and Enid, and work our way south.
