Just a comment on the Jr. Bisons.  I know that their record doesn't look too good, but the difference in their play since the beginning of the season is very notable.  They are starting to score some runs and the effort is there.  With the positive attitude of theri coaches and a years experience, I think that this team will become a factor in the years to come.  Just hang in there, Jr. Bisons, it gets better.
