MMO Player Of The Week: John Buck Takes Week One Honors!
John Buck is MMO’s Player Of The Week!
John Buck introduced himself to Mets’ fans in grand style. He carried his hot spring right into the regular season, and was the key catalyst on offense, which helped lead the Mets to a 4-2 record to start the year.
The 32-year-old finished the opening week of baseball with an impressive slash line of .400/.391/.750. The Mets new backstop mashed two home runs, and scored four runs, while leading the Mets and tying for National League lead with nine RBI. Buck showed his power potential, and also proved he has the ability to drive in runs without a hit with a few key sac flies. The veteran led this young team by example out of the gate, which was a great sign of leadership.
Niese went 1-0 with a 2.13 ERA over his first two starts, and was everything Mets fans could have hoped for in his new role as the Mets ace. Harvey picked up right where he left off this spring and last season, adding another double-digit strikeout performance to his resume. Murphy flexed his muscles with two home runs, and showed he has the power to drive the ball over the center field wall.
Not So Hot
Both Davis and Duda ended the week batting under .200, while Tejada finished just a shade over the Mendoza Line.
