After a three-inning, six-run outing Friday night against the Red Sox, Ponson was designated for assignment.
Ponson, now a free agent, will search for his fifth team since 2003. Despite Ponson's virtual ineffectiveness, habit of drinking and driving, and beating the shit out of an Aruban judge, Major League teams seem to find appeal in Ponson.
It's too bad Colorado and Milwaukee aren't really vying for a playoff spot; Coors Field and Miller Park would have given Ponson naughty thoughts.
