Reaction to Ford, Lyons and Gorecki signings
Dan Lyons was another great signing by the Ducks. Last season, I felt that Lyons was the most underrated member of the Ducks. He hit 10 home runs, with 40 RBI in a platoon role for the Ducks. I think any team would take that off their bench. He also provided some solid defense for the Ducks. I think he'll get more opportunities to play this season after his breakout season last year.
Reid Gorecki a native of Long Island went to Kellenburg Memorial High School in Uniondale, NY. He'll bring a veteran presence to the Ducks lineup (He played briefly in the major leagues with the Atlanta Braves in 2008). Overall, he's a speedy outfielder who gets on base a lot and can make things happen. He's also solid defense outfielder, and can play all three outfield positions.
