Brewers Sign Jay Gibbons

Former major leaguer Jay Gibbons is getting a second chance with the
Milwaukee Brewers. The Brewers have purchased Gibbons’ contract from
the Atlantic League’s Long Island Ducks and will assign him to their
Double-A affiliate in Huntsville, Ala. The 31-year-old Gibbons was
released by the Baltimore Orioles in March after he batted .189 with no
home runs and four RBIs in 16 games in spring training.

So, there was no room for Cirillo anywhere in the organization? Really? Gibbons was serviceable in 06 as a 4th outfielder, terrible in 07 and couldn't catch on anywhere this year. Maybe he's the new Branyan (no, he'll never even see Nashville).
