Barnstormers Add More To Barn: The Lancaster Barnstormers have been busy over the last week. They’ve added a number of new players during that time, including four more this week, Jason Guarente is reporting.

They are: Pitcher Mac Nelson (First year of pro ball… Spent the season with St. George in the independent Golden League), Pitcher Monte Mansfield (Double-A experience with the Houston Astros… Played for the Atlantic City Surf last season), Outfielder Gary Harris (Double-A experience with the Philadelphia Phillies… Played in Golden League this season), Catcher Argenis Tavarez (Single-A experience with the Cleveland Indians).

Guarente also reports that the Barnstormers have 37 players under contract. I’ve never heard of that many players on an A.L. team — or payroll.

Bears Add More To Den: The Newark Bears signed catcher John Pachot. Why does that name sound so familiar? Because it is. Pachot, who’s played in the Expos, Diamondbacks, Marlins, Dodgers, Pirates, Giants and Mets organizations, spent the last two years with the Camden Riversharks and Bears.

Ducks Add More To Pond: The Long Island Ducks traded future consideration to the New Jersey Jackals for outfielder Billy Kovatch (Two years in indy ball) and infielder Bryant Nelson. Nelson, primarily an infielder, spent time in the major leagues with the Boston Red Sox. He also has been in the Astros, Cubs, Diamondbacks, Pirates, Red Sox, Blue Jays and White Sox organizations. Nelson’s A.L. ties include Long Island (2007) and Bridgeport (2006). – Scott Stanchak

So the Pride are no more… and Peter Kirk and ODP are thinking about a building a stadium in Richmond, VA, for an Atlantic League team. Mike and Scott: Any truth?

I’ve heard about Richmond and also Chester County in PA. I guess we’ll see!

I think an average above .380 in any professional league can be described as “tore up”
