But Buck, seemingly armed with the voice of Lucas Duda in his head, decided that he and his 7.8 40 speed is going to take off for second! And in the most predictable outcome since the Marlins had a fire sale, he was thrown out! Go figure!!! Buck taking off for second with a meaningless run is a worse idea than letting Paula Deen choose the theme for your daughter's Sweet 16 party.
