Buck and Marlins in agreement on 3 yrs, $18M. Pending physical.
Nice contract for Buck. I'm sure Cito will be getting his cut. Jays get a supplemental round draft pick.
This is the biggest signing out of FA by the Marlins since they signed Delgado in 2005, and just after they traded Uggla. Are they trying to get the MLB Front Office off their backs by spending some money?
I thought Buck would wait for V-Mart to sign before making a decision, but this certainly is a nice contract. Buck was one of the guys the Red Sox were interested in, so it will be interesting to see who they pursue now.
