Ambro Back: According to Jason Guarente, the Lancaster Barnstormers have signed former Long Island Ducks OF Dominick Ambrosini. Good signing.
Ambrosini played parts of two seasons for Long Island, hitting .288 in 2005 and .317 in 2006.

We Want A Pitcher…: Sounds like Sparky Lyle’s been watching Comedy Central’s “The Colbert Report” lately, because he gave a “wag of the finger” to his pitching staff after yesterday’s 8-4 loss to the Bridgeport Bluefish.
“We’ve got to keep our head above water until we get a couple more pitchers in here to do the jobs of these guys who aren’t doing them right now,” Lyle told The Courier News.
Those “on notice” seem to include Casey Cahill, Phil Norton, and Tony Peralta — all of whom carried an ERA of over six into last night’s game. Norton has been particularly disappointing so far, as he has more Major League experience than anyone on the team.
Norton was the only one of the three who didn’t appear in last night’s game. While Cahill got out unscathed in the runs column, Peralta wasn’t as lucky.
In his second game with the team, he gave up three earned runs and walked two in two innings of work, lowering his ERA to 15.00 – Mike Ashmore
