08:13 AM ET 04.05 | He's back, sort of. Vladimir Guerrero has signed a one-year contract with the Long Island Ducks, an independent minor league team, said agent Greg Maroni of California Sports Management. Guerrero signed with Maroni in January. Guerrero's new team plays in the independent Atlantic League and was, in fact, the league champion last season. ... [Guerrero] is hoping this will be a springboard. "My ultimate goal is to make it back to the major leagues and attempt to reach 500 home runs as soon as possible," Guerrero said in a statement. "I own a home on Long Island and am also very comfortable there. I am very grateful and excited for the opportunity Long Island Ducks GM Michael Pfaff has given me."

He needs 51 to get to 500. That is not going to happen.

Nothing like being focused you yourself - and not the team....

Before reading Hatrunner's comment I was going to ask how many dingers he's had....I was thinking it was like 499 or something. He's not going to play nowhere near long enough to get to 500 even if he could make it back into MLB.

And ditto on Lou's comment!

It will be hard for you to prove anything in the Independent League with pitchers who have no idea where the ball is going when it leaves their hand.

Should be fun to watch him mash in the AL though, even if it's not *the* AL
