I came across an interesting bit of news regarding Class-AAA Buffalo Bisons manager, Ken Oberkfell. The Buffalo News writes, I wrote today’s Inside Baseball column before the Bisons completely melted down defensively and committed three errors in the final two innings of Saturday’s 7-2 loss to Durham.
