John Buck is probably the best free agent option now for catcher. I have no idea why the Royals would let him go while picking up the corpse of Jason Kendall. Teams are still convinced that veteran catchers can have value above and beyond the numbers. The search to quantify that still goes on.
I take full responsibility for what's going on... The team's not playing well. Obviously we're not happy with that, but someone has to be held accountable and I accept that responsibility.
