These are some nice things to think about.
The article begins with: "Things are pretty bleak for Twins fans these days." Let's not turn this thread into a debate about how bleak things are. Let's try to keep on topic -- happy notes. There are many other threads on TD for discussing unhappy notes, and you can start your own if you wish, but please don't derail this one.

I've just plain enjoyed watching this team more than last year. Especially when Santana was playing. More exciting in general. Most people hate September when the team is out of the running but I like seeing the young guys come up and play. This should be a good September to see some of the future.
Hopefully over the next 2 months Buxton tears the cover off the ball so they give him a September call-up.

I had to read this twice to make sure I had it correctly. Every one of his 6 outs this season has come via a strikeout. Besides his first outing where he walked four guys in a row (all of which later scored), he has walked one and gave up two hits.
