I spoke with Lancaster Barnstormers’ P.R. Director Andy Frankel this morning. We had a positive conversation and I look forward to working with the club this upcoming season in terms of more interviews and insight. My posting yesterday was related to last season and hopefully this year ALB.com, as well as all the other media outlets I cover the A.L. for, will be able to have a good-working relationship with not only the Barnstormers, but the seven other A.L. teams as well.

Surf Make Deal: The Atlantic City Surf recieved RHP Josh Tomsu from the New Haven County Cutters of the Can Am League for a player to be named. Also, former A.L. pitcher Evan Thomas signed with the St. Joe Blacksnakes of the American Association. – Scott Stanchak.

More on the Surf’s Newest Player: 25 year-old Josh Tomsu is well traveled for his age, making the Atlantic League the fourth different independent league (Can-Am, Frontier, Pioneer) he’s pitched for. The 6′ 4″ Nebraska native most recently pitched for the New Haven County Cutters in 2005, but enjoyed his best seasons with Rockford of the Frontier League.

Tomsu went 8-5 over his 16 starts in 2003, posting a microscopic 1.71 ERA. He improved his record to 10-3 in 2004, while keeping his ERA low; posting a 2.64.

The right-hander was drafted in the 25th round by the Cincinnati Reds in 2000, but has never spent a day in affiliated baseball. He attended Southwest Texas State University. – Mike Ashmore
