Signing of the Season?

Let's see....Yankees sign (Sir) Sidney Ponson to a minor league deal with the hopes of bringing him up to Yankee Stadium. That's the (Sir) Sidney Ponson who is 32 and has a his history of on-field and off-field troubles (including 2 DUIs), weight problems, failed at being good enough for the Yanks in 2006, and whose presence was so terrible that, despite having a 3.88 ERA for the Texas Rangers, he still found himself kicked off the Texas Rangers for being a "distraction."

Yeah, I don't see how this could possibly fail.
