Regarding Buck:

No power, low average, nice hair, injury-prone, can't even bunt.

What is all the fuss about this guy?  What's wrong about making him prove himself at AAA?  Buck-lovers are probably the same who were Barton-lovers last year.  Barton is now hitting .200 with no power at Sacramento.  What is the facination with corner infieleders and corner outfielders with zero power?

For hitters with potential , power doesn't develop when facing good major league pitchers.  For some guys power-hitting comes with the confidence of abusing lesser hurlers.  McGwire hit most of his HRs against no-name middle relievers, inexperienced young starters and old retreads.  Let young guys practice at AAA and bring them up when they are ready.  I get no pleasure watching impotent performance.  There is no place for limp bats in the majors.
