The Buffalo Bisons have played 35 games so far this season. The AAA Toronto Blue Jays affiliate sit 3 games below .500 at 16-19, which is good for last place in the International League North division. The Bisons have played just 14 games at home thus far and are 5-9 in those games, which leads me to my first low.

Low #1 – Over the 14 games the Bisons have played at home, they have only scored a total of 41 runs. That is an average of 2.93 runs per game average. Normally, teams have to upper hand playing at home, however the opposite is true for the Bisons.

High #1 – Playing on the road. The Bisons are playing particularly well on the road right now sitting a game above .500 at 11-10. They have scored 77 runs over the 21 games not he road, this gives them a 3.7 runs per game average.

Low # 2 – Junior Lake. Now before you immediately stop reading this article, hear me out. After being signed as a 16 year old, the 26 year old is hitting .173 in 35 games as the starting right fielder. Lake has played in the bigs for 201 games, with a .278, .377, .655 line in those games. However, even with him playing well in Buffalo, someone from the big league club would have to get injured. With the Blue Jays carrying, Jose Bautista, Michael Saunders, Kevin Pillar, and Ezequiel Carrera as the bench player. He is a low due to the fact that he does not have what it takes to be able to jump back into the majors with the Blue Jays.

High #2 – Chad GirodoThis year for the Bisons he has been incredible. He is 2-0 with a 1.04 ERA over 8.2 IP. Over that span Chad has 1 ER, 2 BB and 8 K’s. He has been called up to the Jays twice this season recently on May 4th, he is sporting a 1.59 ERA over 6 games with the big club. His only ER is a solo shot that he gave up to Justin Turner. He has been dialled in this season, and with him being a lefty it is only more support for the bullpen.
