Bucky is the real deal. I'm a die hard M's fan and I can tell you Cleveland's pitchers feared
this dude. He doesn't just hit bombs either, he hits for average (.312 in AAA). He barely swings and the ball jumps off his bat like crazy. He reached base like 9 times in a row.
Bucky is a big dude and chicks dig the long ball, but, why is he just making it to the bigs at 28??
He was a National League prospect in the St. Louis system and they had him playing OF. If you've seen him the reason they cut him is self-explanatory. Now he can DH and play 1B, and it shouldn't be a problem.
BTW, on Sunday Elarton threw behind him. He stared the guy down and homered 3 pitches later. Stud.
