2013-05-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)What is your take on Buckle and how much of a risk is he to fall out as being a prospect after his current bout with not being able to find the zone?
(laxtonto from trapped in my office)
One other thing on Buckel: I don't think a turnaround is going to happen overnight. It often doesn't with these guys. But I also think you give him up to a couple years to get it turned around. The Rangers have some experience with this – two going the negative direction, and one going positive. Matt Thompson and Kasey Kiker, two former top prospects, both lost their careers to the "yips." Michael Kirkman overcame it. The good thing about Buckel, for now, is that he still has the stuff. Thompson, Kiker, and even Kirkman (for awhile) kind of lost theirs eventually. (Jason Cole)

(mranney from New York)
Added some elements to his deliver/arsenal and saw his mechanics falter. He struggled all season to re-discover his rhythm. Not a lost cause. Still time to pull it together. (Jason Parks)
