Just happened to take a peak at how Buffalo is doing, and in reading a recap of the Bison's start to the season you would think that the writer was talking about the Mets.

Buffalo is off to it's worse start in team history with a record of 2-11 and one of those wins took 15 innings. When Buffalo became the Mets' AAA affiliate, the organization committed to putting a winning product on the field and not making it a haven for journeymen and aging veterans.

I wonder how long it will take for relations to become strained, despite being a minor league town, Buffalo loves their team and wants to win. It sounds like they're hoping Wily Mo Pena and Freddy Garcia can give the team a spark...

The Mets worked hard to get free agents here, some with good resumes. They signed Jason Cooper at the Bisons' behest (but didn't activate him until last week). There's plenty of good pitching. But this team is in a total funk at the plate. Hot prospect Nick Evans is batting .102 and has one single -- one! -- so far. source Buffalo News
