Such a weird dynamic on threads so far... It's almost like people want Buxton to be an epic failure.
He's pretty much been an epic failure, alas. Twins fans have been heavily emotionally invested in his success for the past 3-4 years. Buxton didn't deliver last year. He was given a pass by everyone. Buxton's start to this year has been historically bad. He is the worst hitter in the entire major leagues right now. Not "near the bottom", not "below average" - the worst. Period. Buxton's not just performing below expectations, his performance has been gut-wrenchingly horrible. I think patience has worn thin and rightfully so.
Do any of us want this? No. But some of us are starting to accept the fact that Buxton might be a bust.
