If Buxton were to go down, I would rather go with Kepler in CF and then Wade in RF. I would think there's no way the Twins would go with Lamarre as their everyday CF.

I'd be 100% fine with that. Clearly there are options at AAA that could hit over .167 and give you adequate defense in CF.

James Paxton's rank among AL starting pitchers

WAR: 6th

ERA: 10th

WHIP: 8th

K/9: 3rd

FIP: 8th

SIERA: 4th


Safe to say he's pretty good. 



Yes - Paxton is good, but the point is almost EVERY starting pitcher they run into is shutting them down.Leake did it again yesterday.


Right now this team would be lucky to score on AAA pitching.With Mauer out and Buxton and Sano appearing lost at the plate, this team is going no where fast.


That Twins 2nd baseman - #29 - he doesn't run, he "ca-rew-zes" - Earl Weaver
