We haven't written about Lew Ford in years. According to Jack Etkin of Inside The Rockies, Colorado signed the outfielder to a minor league deal. Ford spent '08 in Japan. He seems to have little chance of making the big league team. It seems that Seth Stohs had this news way back on March 4th.
Back in '04, Ford played regularly for the Twins and hit .299/.381/.446 in 154 games.
