McDermond Back: I heard the rumblings a few days ago and posted it here, but The Courier News’ Ryan Dunleavy confirmed it, the Somerset Patriots are bringing back C Ryan McDermond.

In this article, McDermond tells the paper that “I understand my role will be limited, but when the opportunity does show up, I’ve got to show up.”

With Fernando Lunar (.085) and Travis Anderson (.133) struggling at the plate, I’d be surprised if McDermond doesn’t see more playing time than the one at-bat he got in the team’s third game of the year, a 15-inning marathon against the Surf.

However, as Dunleavy notes in his piece, the 25-year-old is returning to baseball after a three year hiatus to the sport, so the team will likely ease him into the action.

Bear Trap: It would appear as though they have their own version of Ducks Insider on their site, although you have to dig around to find it. I’m…ummm, not entirely sure of what to make of it at this point, but I’m sure it’ll evolve into something, as it’s a bit of a hodge podge at this point.

That also reminds me to never use “hodge podge” again.

Also, the Bears have finally been able to get INF Liu Rodriguez through his visa issues and in uniform. No word on if they had to make any moves to fit him into the roster…

Surf Stuff: Continuing to hear some not so great things about what’s going on in the Surf front offices. Feels kind of similar to what the ownership in Nashua did after they switched leagues, there was a major house cleaning that took place up there. – Mike Ashmore

It seems pretty obvious the Surf is leaving the Atlantic League after the season when the York and Southern Maryland franchises start playing.

as best as I can tell, so far the plan is to keep the Surf in the Atlantic League and Atlantic City for the 2007 Season (the 10th), then evaluate if this is the best league/ best location. Discussions were opened with the group that manages the Atlantic City Race Course property (actually about 15 miles west in Mays Landing) – and that expansion may be the better place for this team as traffic patterns are better managed. With Atlantic City itself still trying to figure out what to do about Bader Field (the world’s very 1st airport) an possibly building another housing tract, chances are that the now Bernie Robbins, former Sandcastle Stadium, may come down.

I’m not sure that York is going to be ready in time, and the “other” Long Island franchise is allegedly coming up soon as well. It would make more sense to have even divisions (4 or 5 teams in each) rather than another homeless traveling team.

I think it’s obvious that Bear Trap refers to something on the Bears website…

Gotta love the Atlantic League. Need a pitcher? Pluck one from a division rival.
