The real numbers on Buxton for me are as follows:

46
92
140
28
87

Those would be the number of games he's played each season with the Twins.We can throw away the first one since he was called up in June that season, but the last two are like big red flags.To call to question his style of play and inability to stay on the field because he keeps crashing into things (walls mostly) is no longer anything that can be called "negativity"

I wholeheartedly disagree with anyone who feels "he has to play this way".No he does not have to play the field like he has and YES he needs to absolutely modify his game.Just as Eddie Rosario needs to learn how to take more professional at bats, Buxton needs to learn how to keep himself on the field


393 game played in 4.5 seasons for an average of 87 games per season. That is what you would expect from your 4th OF or a platoon infielder.

Torreyes added to the roster. Buxton to 60 day IL

And Gibson re-instated from the IL


I wonder if Pepto Bismol is considered a controlled substance or masking agent?

A soft-spoken, emotional and contrite Michael Pineda just addressed the media for about 7-8 minutes. Said he’d “love” to return to the Twins next year but acknowledged it is out of his contro


I would take him if I was Twins management but he would have to take a discount on his next contract. The Twins paid him to sit out an entire season and handsomely, at that. Given he did not pitch even one full season for the Twins and was essentially paid for two seasons, he owes the Twins. I know it doesn't work that way, but it should.

I'll give credit where it's due. That was good.

You got that right. Rosario is still swinging at pitches way out of the strike zone.

What has happened to the Twins potent offense? They are terrible right now.

Tons of guys are out of the lineup. When you have an outfield of Arraez, Wade, and Rosario you are in trouble.

Nothing wrong with Tony Carew's hitting.

Of course when Berrios finally pitches a good game the offense is nonexistent.
