Travis Buck,the 2nd yr player nobody talks about

Postby Members Only Jackets » Wed May 02, 2007 6:07 pm

Why no love for Travis Buck...sure, he's had his cold spots like a lot of players thus far, but he has 3 HRs and has been somewhat impressive for a rookie ...

Baseball America has him as the A's #1 prospect and he's getting good playing time...I think he'll be a fulltime starter soon.

I guess he's a poor man's Pence.

thoughts?

He seems like a good player from what I've seen. Deeper leagues he could be money. ;-D
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

I am actually pretty high on this kid. I had him in my 40 prospects, which is higher than any other list that i saw.

His main fault to me is that he's a hitting prospect in the A's organization.

If he was a pitcher in the A's organization it would be a different story.

Isn't he only day-to-day with Nick Swisher on the cusp of coming back?

I'm high on him too. I picked him up before the season started and used him a little bit here and there before Austin Kearns became available.

I don't see him contributing in anything smaller than 16 team leagues.

nobody projected him having any more upside than Andre Ethier, half a month of ab won't change my mind.
Are you interested in joining a 28 teams dynasty league? If so, PM me.
