Sierra Talking to Mets: Several New York area papers are reporting that OF Ruben Sierra is in discussions with the Mets to join their team. However, with the Mets recently claiming Ricky Ledee off of waivers, it puts into question whether Sierra will still have a spot when he’s ready to return. Sierra played for the Surf in 1999, and was rumored to be coming back to the league, a move that still has a slight chance of happening.

Johnson Set To Jet: Somerset Patriots P Mike Johnson will be playing for Team Canada in the Olympic Qualifying Tournament later this month, this much was assumed. However, what we didn’t know was that he will not be returning to the team, giving the team only a few days with the lights out Almonte-Elder-Johnson combo for the final few innings.

Stormers Sign Big Leaguer: The Lancaster Barnstormers have agreed to terms with former Royals P Brad Voyles. Voyles, a righty, appeared in 40 games for Kansas City from 2001-2003. He went 0-4 and posted a 6.59 ERA in those 40 games.

Hey Colin: The Bridgeport Bluefish have assigned P Colin Young to the Road Warriors. No word on what move(s) were made to make room for him, if any.

Bears Ink Cosgrove: Considering the fact he’s listed as the probable starter for tomorrow, it seems safe to assume that the Bears have signed P Mike Cosgrove to a contract. Cosgrove has prior experience in the AL, having pitched for Nashua last season.

He’s Like The Wind: The Surf have signed P Jeff Swayze to a contract. Swayze, who last pitched in 2003 with the Southeast League’s Macon Peaches, reportedly attended tryout camp with Atlantic City this year. – Mike Ashmore

After Watching the stormers score 10 runs in the 2nd inning. the ducks removed juan Gonzalez from the lineup, i can now see why the duck fans are so upset with him.
i guess standing in right field for 45 minutes is to much for him to handle. he had 1 ball hit to him in that inning and he lolly gaged over to it.

yeah I was at the game as well…poor old Juan Gonzalez…must have worn himself out after that inning….haha. I wonder if he took himself out of the game or if Mc Cormack removed him??? I would venture a guess and say Juan removed himself, just from the way things have been going with him. It looks like he plays only when HE wants and only IF he wants!!

I have to think the Stormers are the team to beat this year. After taking 2out of 3 on Long Island,they are picking up where they left off. And this is coming from a Ducks fan,so im a little worried. By the way,has anyone noticed the resemblance between Stormers catcher Lance Burkhart and Astro great Craig Biggio. There batting stance,they way they wear their uniforms,down to the large elbow pad on there left arm.

Can’t beat a Swayze reference. That’s how ALB rolls.
