07:01 AM ET 05.02 | Few could have predicted that John Buck, coming off a dispiriting 2012 season, would return to Miami as a visitor with such success, as he did Wednesday night. Right now, all his offensive dreams are coming true for Buck, whose 27 RBI trail only Triple Crown defender Miguel Cabrera, red-hot Orioles slugger Chris Davis and no one in the National League. ... [Buck] is loving the New York experience. "Maybe when I was young it would have been different. Now that I'm older, I welcome the pressure of it," Buck said. "Everyone in the city is knowledgeable. It's fun pressure. I don't wear it as hard. It feels like positive pressure." However it feels to him, he has been a savior for the Mets.

As long as he doesn't pull a 2010 Rod Barajas. Had like 9 HR by May 7th, 11 at the end of May, then basically did nothing (about .170 avg with 1Hr and 4 RBIS in June and July ) until he was traded to the Dodgers in late August.

Yes, basically being "Barajassed" is like someone grabbing you like a six-pack...........you wouldn't wish it on anybody - he was exceedingly mediocre in Philly..........

he either cool off himself or get tougher in the middle of the season,the question is,,could he hit 35 homeruns? and why not?? unless he gets injuried other than that shouldn't be a problem!!!

that means,,,the red sox would be paying him the 14 millions unstead of the 5 millions per a single year contract!!!
