Herd fires up the Hot Stove, will introduce Teufel

Cold and frigid is the forecast but it's plenty hot for baseball today for the Bisons as they host their annual Winter Hot Stove Luncheon in the Adam's Mark. New Mets manager Terry Collins, the Buffalo Baseball Hall of Famer, will be the keynote speaker. Prior to the luncheon, the Bisons will hold a press conference to introduce Tim Teufel as their new manager.

As we reported weeks ago, Teufel is getting promoted from Double-A Binghamton to take over the Herd with Ken Oberkfell gone to New York to join Collins' staff. Teufel shared the second base duties with Wally Backman on the Mets' 1986 World Series champions. Backman, who managed Class A Brooklyn last year, will be taking over Teufel's old job as manager in Binghamton.

Keep it here during the day for more thoughts from Teufel and Collins and probably a dash of audio and video thrown in.
