JOHN BUCK RUMORS & GOSSIP

John Buck, Logan Morrison back at Marlins Park as Mariners

MIAMI -- When John Buck went to Safeco Field for his offseason physical after signing with the Seattle Mariners he took a selfie next to a familiar face gracing the venue’s wall.

Ceremonial first pitch at Mets game breaks glass

Your browser does not support iframes. The ceremonial first pitch before Tuesday night's New York Mets game at Citi Field shattered a pane of glass in front of a camera behind home plate. The pitch was thrown by Gary Green, owner of the Omaha Storm Chasers (Triple-A affiliate of the Kansas City Royals) and a lifelong Mets fan. Green threw it so far over Mets catcher John...

Mets Will Play Both D’Arnaud and Buck At Same Time If It Comes Down To That

Updated by HoJo at 2:15 PM According to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, if Travis d’Arnaud is promoted at some point this season whenever the team deems him ready it will not affect John Buck’s playing time at all if he is still producing. Terry Collins said that both could possibly start in the same game with Buck potentially playing first base. Buck has never played a Major...

Roundtable: What do you make of John Buck’s start?

Matt Harvey’s been dominant, Lucas Duda has been selective and powerful but beyond a shadow of a doubt the best story so far for the 2013 Mets is that of John Buck.  So, I asked friends in the blogosphere the following question: What do you make of John Buck’s start?  Is this a brief hot stretch like Rod Barajas in 2010 or is it something else? These people all do great...

Don’t Get Too Attached To John Buck

John Buck, 32, has started the season with blinders on. He is focused and locked into every pitch the second it releases a pitcher’s hand and it’s almost as if it heads to the plate in super slow motion for him. He’s kept criticism at bay and been one of the bigger surprises for the Mets in the early part of this season. Buck continued his hot streak with another home run...

What the heck has gotten into John Buck?

And the streak continues! For the ninth straight game (hey, maybe I was onto something) to open the season the Mets have hit at least one home run, a streak that is now a new record while besting the 87 squad. Surprisingly leading the charge is the “throw in” in the R.A. Dickey trade, John Buck. To say that Buck is hot would be a massive understatement. Buck has been everything...

Obligatory John Buck What If Post: Keep Him Or Trade Him At The Deadline?

This is the T-Shirt Tuesday design for the April 23 game against the Los Angeles Dodgers, honoring Mets catcher John Buck. It bears a striking resemblance to Blitzen. In 31 plate appearances so far this season, Buck is batting .393/.387/.464 with four home runs and an NL leading 14 RBIs in eight games. Buck did not hit his fourth home run of the year last year until May 13 (25 games...

Check Out John Buck’s Awesome New Mask!

In addition to his 2-for-4 performance during yesterday’s Opening Day routing of the San Diego Padres, Mets backstop John Buck debuted a snazzy new catcher’s mask that has people talking.

Mets360 2013 projections: John Buck and Travis d’Arnaud

Next up in our projection series is a look at catchers. The Mets figure to open the year with John Buck as their starting catcher but few, if any, believe he’ll be the everyday catcher by September. While every projection is based in part by how much playing time you believe the individual will amass, it seems even more pertinent with Buck. So, today’s projection will actually...

How much is a John Buck worth in 2013?

It would not surprise me if someone had a database of all of the trades in MLB history and they said that it was not all that unusual for a team to make a trade and receive three minor league guys and a major league player. But my guess is that it’s quite uncommon to receive that haul in a trade and for fans to be more excited about all three of the minor league guys than the...
