Reaction to Ford, Lyons and Gorecki signings - I wasn't a surprise to me when Lew Ford signed with the Ducks today.

He's also a highly recognizable name from his days in the major leagues, as well as a fan favorite. He'll definitely help sell tickets. Last season, he hit .318 with 10 home runs, and 45 RBI, which were almost identical to his 2009 totals with the Ducks. This shows that he's consistent, but it also shows that his body can still handle the rigors of a full season (he'll be 36 in August)...more
