I don't think anyone actually expected Buck to do this. I'm pleased.

Like they had any other choice after they optioned Avery.

Looking at tonight's lineup I wonder how many balls hit on the ground to the left side of field will have ANY leather touch them until they bounce off of the OF wall? We have a battle cruisers of line ups. All big guns and NO defense.

Ofahn: the cruisers are hitting like rowboats. Not much is working on this team of late expect the bullpen 8-)

He is the closest thing we have to a table setter. I think ideally he would be a perfect #2 hitter but without Roberts or Avery, I'm good with it. He played great tonight, 3 doubles, good defensive RF. I admit I didn't see this coming. Good move Buck

I'm still bitter as to why Avery is not getting an opportunity now. There are several players that could go away to make room for him.

Nice game, he did okay last night too. I was completely surprised by the move.

He's the best they have right now. Putting Chavez at lead-off is silly.

Yea count me as one who didn't see this coming. I've always thought he was a good leadoff option but I never penciled him there with the lack of production guys they have for the middle of the lineup.

Needless to say, he is already proving to be a much needed piece. Regardless of what people think on the contract, he is a vital piece to this team and they clearly were hurting without him. Of course they need much more than him to win, but count me as very relieved to have him back.

I don't mind it for the time being but we really need a leadoff hitter. I like Nick in the 2-hole.

It's about time. He should have been leading off since Reimold got hurt.
