Insert Austin Powers Reference Here: The Long Island Ducks have added P Mike Myers.

The long-time MLB reliever? Nope. This Mike Myers has no prior professional experience, and is fresh out of Adelphi college. He had most recently pitched this spring with the Long Island Storm traveling team.

Sounds more like a guy you’d see a team give a shot to out of an open tryout, and definitely not someone who fits the stereotypical Ducks player mold.

In addition, the team has added P Kevin Mannix and INF Pete Maestrales. Mannix has pitched for both the Ducks and Road Warriors previously in this league, and Maestrales was originally scheduled to be a Duck this season before briefly joining the Cardinals organization.

C Mike Rose was released, P Ben Grezlovski was activated and P Jason Simontacchi, P Scott Rice and OF Dominick Ambrosini were all placed on the inactive list. – Mike Ashmore

What will happen to the level of play in the Atlantic League when they are too cheap to pay for seasoned players?

look at the current AL rosters they have more seasoned AAA and MAJ players then any other Indy league or any other AL season. There is a salery cap and all teams spend within a couple of dollars of that amount. Carl Evertt, John Halama and Bryan Lawrence are not here to make a living they are here to get picked up. It takes balence to be successful – not every position can be a star. Why would a seasoned MLB/AAA player want to be a 4th outfielder. Look at the talent in this league – hey ex RW Alberto Castillo is in AAA . That is an uneducated statement.

What is the answer for NOT increasing the salary cap since the Atlantic League has been formed over 10 years ago? You would think standard inflation/cost of living would mandate an increase.
