If you told me that Buck would add one or two wins to the team over, say, Juan Samuel, next year, I wouldn't argue. I would like to know where those wins are coming from, though. In-game decisions? Playing time distribution? Line-up construction? Buck doesn't magically add to the win column -- those W's have to come from somewhere. Also, the team wasn't nearly as good as they looked at the end of last season, just as they weren't as bad as they looked at the beginning. But that's generally how it goes, right?
