Where do you think your bat fits in the lineup in the current twins roster??
Byron Buxton (2:48 PM)
Hopefully I'm more experienced and more disciplined at the plate to be a leadoff hitter. That's where I've hit most of my life. I feel confident there. Hopefully leadoff.
I don't really care where he bats but I like that he cares.

Just a cool random thought....
I hope Bux realizes he's got a looong way to go , a lot of hard work left yet to do, well for at least 1 more year anyway.

Buxton, Mauer, Sano, Arcia, Hicks, Rosario, Dozier 1-7 opening day 2015.
With those names I'd go Buxton, Hicks, Mauer, Sano, Arcia, whoever the DH is, Dozier, Rosario. But could flip around Rosario/Dozier/Hicks in pretty much any fashion.
I think Sano is going to be your prototypical clean-up guy. He's not going to have the batting avg. (compared to Mauer) for the 3-spot, and Buxton/Hicks will score a ton of runs in front of them.
Spring Training Regular since 2011.
