Get the word on the 2009 Herd

Baseball fans starved for the goods on the new-look Buffalo Bisons can certainly get their fill in Wednesday's Buffalo News, which includes a comprehensive look at the Herd in its first season as the top affiliate of the New York Mets.

Here's our starting lineup:

It's a Whole New Ballgame -- the change in affiliation is far from the only one at the ballpark this season.

Postion-by-position breakdown --This is National League style club built on pitching, defense and speed. Don't look for a ton of three-run homers.

Strawberry Night tops promotions -- Get the rundown on the promotional lineup, highlighted by Darryl Strawberry Bobblehead Night.

IL preview -- All those ex-Bisons and manager Torey Lovullo are now in Columbus and they will be one of the prime contenders for the Governors' Cup.

Be sure to check out Dan Kirchberger's video look at Tuesday's workout, including comments from manager Ken Oberkfell, and John Hickey's photo gallery.

And go to this link for the team's 2009 schedule.

In Thursday's paper, get the complete Buffalo roster, a look at Opening Day starter Jonathan Niese and some thoughts from Jason Cooper on returning to the Bisons after playing here as an Indians farmhand since 2004.
