Of all the guys on the Twins....Buxton, Maeda, and Cruz are irreplaceable.
Record with Buxton versus w/o.....CF Defense and Buck's Offense is hard to replace.
If you want to trade Sano, Rosario, Polanco, Kepler, Arreaz, Garver, and even Berrios---I see a way to replace them. Buck, Maeda, and Cruz seem to bring something a little extra to me.
The record with Buxton in the lineup is a ridiculous argument. It could also be said that he is a liability as a result of always being injured, thus causing more losses as a result.
It's a great argument for an agent, but doesn't hold much water on the field of play.
At the end of the day, the guy can't keep himself healthy and when he does he's a .238 lifetime hitter.

Defense starts at the corners!
