I guess some GM's prefer a known to an unknown. You know what you're getting with Buck, good and bad. He seems like he gets the respect of his teams, knows how to manage a bullpen, and manage a game. Snide remarks unwelcomed.
Well obviously you hope for the best possible outcome if he’s here. That goes without saying.
This thread could be totally renamed with “what is your expectation of his health”. That’s literally the only question worth asking. If he’s healthy, he will Hit for power and should play solid defense.
We know the OBp will not be that good.
