This is a good signing. It's VERY low risk and Loewen could be a Spring Training surprise.

I like this move a lot. Very high potential acquisition with no risk attached. May very well be the 4th OF on the MLB club but even if he doesnt make the team, he'll be an awesome acquisition to the Buffalo squad.

Very good signing for the Buffalo Bisons... Now for the Mets... I don`t really know. How many people can mash Triple A pitching? The answer is A LOT!! Now if I were Sandy, I would try to sign a closer NOW. Stop fooling around and get one of the 10-15 closers out there. You can sign 20 Adam Loewen types but they probably won`t help the Mets.

Hey at least, the Bisons will have a good lineup, the Mets- well I`m not so sure anymore...
