March 13, 2007 – Ask Ashmore Again March 13, 2007Posted by atlanticleaguenews in Uncategorized.
Ask Ashmore: I figured I’d do an impromptu “Ask Ashmore” day. Want my take on the latest Atlantic League stories? My thoughts on the 2007 season? What I ate for breakfast this morning?
Put your questions in the comments section, and I’ll make sure I take some time to tackle them today.
Hake To Rake For York: Jason Guarente writes in his latest blog entry that former Lancaster INF Travis Hake will indeed be playing for the Revolution this season. And he also hints at a former big leaguer joining the Barnstormers. Stay tuned on this one…
Bears Sign Thomas: Newark has signed former Riversharks P Evan Thomas. The 32-year-old righty last pitched in the Atlantic League for Camden in 2004, quickly getting picked up after starting the season 8-1 in 13 starts. After spending 2005 in the Angels organization, he returned to independent ball last season, going 4-7 with a 6.19 ERA for St. Joe of the American Association.
While he has had previous success under the Camden trio (Brandt, Foucault, Krenchicki) he’s also posted ERA’s over six in each of the past two seasons. I’ve liked a lot of Newark’s signings so far — but ask me about this one on June 1st and I’ll have a better idea of how this one turned out. – Mike Ashmore, email@example.com
