Marlins - Signed Buck
Florida Marlins - Signed C John Buck to a 3-year, $6 million contract.
For the prices, what’s not to like? Buck’s an average-ish catcher with pop but is ordinary defensively and makes too many outs but for $2 million a year, you can’t expect to get…WHAT?! That’s $6 million per season for John Buck? A 3-year, $18 million for friggin’ John Buck?
I think I liked the Marlins better when they refused to spend any money. Did Jeff Loria get access to TARP funds? Or is he working for the Pentagon? I’d rather spend $10,000 for a toilet than $18,000,000 for John Buck.
Hey, Marlins, for $5 million, I’d defecate in your mailbox, which would still leave $13 million, more than enough to get a better catcher than John Buck.
This makes less sense than the plotting of the Star Wars prequels. I think I buy Hayden Christensen’s turmoil in Revenge of the Sith more than this being a good signing. I’d rather spend 3 years listening to Jar-Jar Binks and an elementary school orchestra doing ska versions of death metal on endless loop than spend 3 years having John Buck play for my team with that contract.
