After months of rumors and speculation the Mets have signed the Buffalo Bisons to a two year deal to be their AAA affiliate. The teams are rejoining 42 years after the Mets cut ties with Buffalo as their first ever AAA team.
The Mets cut ties with the New Orleans Zephyrs, their last AAA affiliate, after just 2 years. That was 2 years too many, if you ask me. I don’t mean to slight New Orleans by saying that. I understand the idea of trying to give back a little after the devastation of hurricane Katrina but a New York team has no business having their AAA team so far away from their home city.
