It's almost like the last 2 years didn't happen, and people are only judging these guys on this year. Not.
Sure, Buxton and Mauer have question marks but people are concerned about Rosario.
It's fine to show emotion and want players to succeed. What I find maddening is watching people who have been baseball fans for a decade or longer gnashing their teeth over a dozen games. What an exhausting way to live.
Yes, I'm concerned about Buxton. I'm concerned about Mauer. I'm watching Rosario closely... but man, it's 14 games. If Rosario has two good games, he jumps above his career OPS. If Buxton or Mauer have two good games, their numbers are suddenly respectable.
Baseball is a long, grueling season. I'll ride the ups and downs but I won't let them control me.
I also won't wave the Hector Santiago flag loud and proud for the same reason. I'm glad he's off to a good start but he's still Hector-freakin-Santiago.
