Did I say Balboni? Maybe I meant Kevin McReynolds. Which I guess is not that insulting.
I was being a little rash, but I'm not completely sold on the guy. He's a career .268/.316/.797 away from Arlington, which means he's kind of an out machine, and Buck should definitely play Dellucci over him. Dellucci's never had great numbers, but he hasn't played a full season since he was a 25-year old rookie Snake. He's literally on pace for about 150 walks, too.
Still, he and Mench are the only legitimate outfielders Texas has right now. Richard Hidalgo might be gone forever and nobody realizes that Laynce Nix is awful.
Fwiw, I have Mench in both my AL-only leagues, so I'm with you brother.
