Ducks Sign Big Leaguer: Shocker, I know. But yes, the team has signed 35-year-old LHP Kevin Tolar. Tolar pitched for the Tigers in 2000 and 2001 and also for the Red Sox in 2003.

Another member of the “Cowboy Up” team finds his way to the Atlantic League – he joins Hector Almonte, Jason Shiell and Robert Person. Another member of the unfathomably disappointing ’03 Sox, Jeremy Giambi, was long rumored to be coming to the league last season, but never did.

Tolar started the year with Saltillo of the Mexican League. This guy has more or less been everywhere, spending time with the *deep breath* White Sox, Pirates, Indians, Mets, Pirates (again), Reds, Tigers, Pirates (yet again), Red Sox, Cubs, Blue Jays and Diamondbacks organizations. If my math is correct, he’s been on somewhere in the vicinity of 25 different teams in his career.

Affiliation Update: I’m tentatively scheduled to go to Newark tonight, so I might not get this done until late tonight or tomorrow. – Mike Ashmore

Mike – in case you don’t get enough of this, all of your updates are appreciated.

If the Ducks made decisions based on factors other than big league experience and name recognition, they’d probably win more games.

The Sharks release Mike Floyd and Anthony Aquillino today, and put L.J. Biernbaum on the DL. Camden rosters shows 3 outfielders and 10 pitchers on the active roster. Plan on seeing some new additions arriving shortly.
