Just when the Buffalo Bisons got on a bit of a roll with three wins in a row, they find themselves stymied by the weather again.

After a delay the game was called off and will be rescheduled as p…

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. is gone to Toronto, conceivably for good. Now, you never completely know how these things go. As Buffalo Bisons manager Bobby Meacham said Monday, "the big leagues are a different animal, man." And even Los Angeles Angels superstar Mike Trout got sent back to Triple-A for 20 games in 2012 as a 23-year-old. But Guerrero certainly looks like a sure b…

The record of 20 strikeouts by the Bisons came on June 3, 2001 in a 2-1 loss against the Clippers in C…
