Bisons' announcement is not a Mets game

The Buffalo Bisons are promoting a "major event announcement" as part of Friday's sold-out Winter Hot Stove Luncheon at the Adam's Mark. The featured speakers are Mets GM Omar Minaya and field coordinator Terry Collins, the Buffalo Baseball Hall of Famer and former Herd manager.

I think I've got an idea what's up but -- unlike bigmouth national types who cover the NFL and did such a lousy job on the Bills' coaching/GM searches -- I prefer to be right rather than just throw information around seemingly without caring if it's good.

I can tell you this to quell some speculation that's already flaring around emails, Twitter, etc.: It's NOT an exhibition game against the Mets. Those games have been outlawed as part of the players' most recent union contracts and they're not done anymore. Too bad for fans in minor-league towns but the big-leaguers simply said no mas to them.
