Salvation has arrived.
The 2-15 Buffalo Bisons have activated OF Wily Mo Pena.
I can’t even tell you how excited this makes me. As someone who will be spending many summer nights in the Bisons press box, the thrill of even a potential home run is downright exhilarating. I mean, this is a team that has four home shutouts already. They are 13 games back of the division lead, and it’s still freaking April.
Wily Mo may strike out 117 times this year, but the six home runs he has will be 650 foot bombs that take out a window on the other HSBC building. The glass one.
This summer just got a whole lot more interesting.
