Mets catcher John Buck’s batting average has dropped so low, that he has started losing playing time to backup catcher Anthony Recker over the last two weeks. If Buck’s career as a baseball player was cut short for whatever reason, he may want to consider giving comedy a try.  After Saturday’s 7-6 loss to the Brewers, Buck spoke to the media about a mishap he almost caused during the game. During the Brewers traditional sausage race at their home games, Buck was running out of the dugout to catch and nearly crashed into one of the contestants.  He was able to dodge the sausages and thankfully no one was hurt, but Buck’s actions were enough to get him booed by the Milwaukee faithful. Buck recanted the story as told by MLB.com’s Anthony DiComo: “I was just coming out of the dugout like I normally do, Buck said.  “Then all of a sudden I felt like I had a big wiener over me.  They were not happy about it.  They were probably happy I struck out after that.  I messed up their wiener race.” The Mets may have lost on Saturday, but they were able to pull out a 2-1 win on Sunday to take the series from the Brewers.  Jeremy Hefner won his fourth straight start and as far as we can tell, there were no issues with anyone’s wiener.
