Drop Buck. He'll cool off soon and VMart should start hitting again. You don't need to waste a roster spot on a 2nd catcher, especially when Bruce is just sitting there.

Thanks for help with mine.

I definitely have the same thought as you i want to drop Buck but he draws interest from other teams I'd hate to give him up for free.

Definitely think you have to drop Buck. You may be giving him up "for free" but it's almost like you're trading him straight up for Bruce which would be a homerun.

Yeah def Buck. Even if you could trade Buck the drop for Bruce is probably better than what would you get anyway -- look at it as a trade if it makes you feel better if Buck gets picked up. I would take a Bruce for Buck trade all day.
