    Buck Coats’ real first name is apparently…Buck. It’s not a nickname.

    If it really says “Buck” on his birth certificate, then I have to concede: he’s got a cooler baseball name than “Bubba Crosby.”

    Courtesy of Trent: Wayne Krivsky said Jay Bruce had won Baseball America’s Minor League Player of the Year award for this season.

  3. KC2HMZ says:

    TRADED: Victor Santos to the Orioles for cash. No, not [url=]David Cash[/url], just plain cash, as in, “More dollars for the Reds to waste on guys like Eric Milton.”

    SUSPENDED: C Ryan Jorgensen, for 50 games for violating MLB’s Joint
    Drug Prevention and Treatment Program.

    No wonder Jorgensen wasn’t one of the September call-ups.

  4. KC2HMZ says:

    Coats could turn out to be another super utility player like Keppinger. Or even Freel – you look at his [url=]numbers in the minors[/url] and it looks like he can swipe a bag. And so far he’s played every position except pitcher, catcher, and first base.
