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.

Matt Harvey has looked a bit more human of late. While he has still been more than impressive this season, Harvey has allowed eight runs in his last two starts. This could be a result of reduced control thanks to a blister on one of his pitching fingers. And the New York Mets may give Harvey some rest to let the blister heal.
According to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, Harvey...
The brilliance of Keith Barlow Hernandez on SNY is truly one of a kind. His “Keithisms” are legendary and have been said over and over by Mets fans for years.
So here at the Daily Stache, the fantastic @MetsKevin11 has come up with a way to listen to his greatness over and over with the Keith Hernandez Soundboard.
You wanna hear him say “What a Rockhead!”? You can! How bout...
Josh Satin has continued his hot hitting from AAA during his first three weeks at the major league level with the New York Mets. Though Satin is not considered a top prospect by any means, fans can take some solace in the fact that he has performed well since coming up from AAA Las Vegas. In 55 at bats, he has hit .382, 1, 8 with 9 2Bs replacing the demoted Ike Davis. However, now...
On Friday night, the Mets hammered the Milwaukee Brewers, defeating them by the final score of 12-5. The Bad News Brewers committed three errors on the field and a number of mental errors on the bases. Despite the Brew Crew’s valiant effort to become the butt of David Letterman’s next Top Ten list, it was two Mets players who really stood out. One went 0-for-6 but took...
Jeremy Hefner allowed one run on two hits over seven innings and the New York Mets turned two throwing errors by Milwaukee third baseman Juan Francisco into a pair of unearned runs and a 2-1 victory over the Brewers on Sunday.
Josh Satin had two doubles and a single for the Mets, scoring one run and driving in the other to extend his hitting streak to 11 games.
Hefner, who matched...
Where there’s smoke, there’s Matt Harvey’s fire.
By the time I arrived at Shea Stadium in mid-June, a Dwight Gooden start had become a New York event. I had been watching Gooden baffle opponents on television over the first two months of the 1985 season. The first month he shut out the Philadelphia Phillies twice and the Cincinnati Reds. From May and early June he pitched into...
Eric Young Jr. scored on shortstop Brandon Crawford's fielding error with two outs in the 16th inning, and the New York Mets outlasted the San Francisco Giants 4-3 in a game that ended early Tuesday morning.
Young singled with one out and stole second. After he advanced to third on Daniel Murphy's groundout, lefty Javier Lopez entered and intentionally walked David Wright...
