Watch out, Sidney

FORT TRAFFICJAMBURG, Fla. -- Matt Garza 1, Sidney Ponson 0.

At least that's how I see it. With Ponson twiddling his thumbs after bungling his visa situation, Garza took full advantage of his opportunity to make a good first impression in tonight's G'fruit League opener vs. Boston's A-lineup.

Garza's line: 2 ip, 1 k, 22 pitches (15 strikes). Garza struck out Big Papi swinging on an inside curveball to end the first inning.

I know, it's just two innings in a meaningless game. But Garza came out after making brash comments in today's Pioneer Press story and showed initial signs of backing up his words.

Was Ponson in the dugout? I don't think Sid reads the PiPress, but I wonder what the tension is like between him and Garza

Jason, I'm hearing rumors about you leaving the Pioneer Press. Are they true? I hope not.
