Could Ponson actually be a goner?

Please tell me my boys at the "Pride of the Yankees" blog have it right (emphasis mine):

UPDATE -- 10:35am: Apparently the team is calling up Alfredo Aceves, who has been on a fast-track through the system this year. Aceves, a starer, has been pretty good at Scranton (eight starts, 2-3 record, 4.12 ERA, 42 strikeouts to 13 walks). We'd think this means Ponson is toast, but the team hasn't announced what the corresponding roster move will be.
We can only hope. We can only hope. The nightmare might be (partially) over. It's about time to see what the kids on the farm can do. I'm waiting for all the witty/lame/trite Phil Coke headlines that the tabloids can come up with...

UPDATE (8/28/08, 1:08pm): Just tuned into to the Yanks game at work (love the TV in the office) and heard Michael Kay announce that the Yanks sent David Robertson back down to make room for Aceves, not Ponson. I am officially bummed.
