It's deadline day for Thursday's Herd Hot Stove with Wally

Today is your last chance to get in on the Bisons' winter Hot Stove, a "Back to Baseball" meet-and-greet with new manager Wally Backman. It's Thursday night from 6-8 at the Hyatt Regency grand ballroom. For $20, you get pasta and carving stations, a Bisons merchandise table and cash bar, and a chance to mingle with Backman in an relaxed atmosphere. There will also be a brief formal program.

To order tickets/RSVP for the event, call the Bisons at 846-2011 or send an email to

The media will also have a chance to chat with Backman about the Mets' upcoming spring training. I think I gotta get his opinion on GM Sandy Alderson's new Twitter account, which already has about 19,000 followers after just seven tweets.
