I really don’t see the logic of committing $50 million plus to Byron Buxton and then taking a wait and see approach as to whether he will play. If he doesn’t, that extension looks pretty foolish.

2- Do you really lock up Buxton after his injury plagued season? And would Buxton even want to sign right now? I believe Buxton and his agent would want to wait and hope he reaches his full potential, then cash in bigger. 

This is why the Twins should attempt to sign Buxtonto an extension now.

Not when you factor in airfare though.


...but you can't get one the all time favorite Japanese ballpark snacks: dried squid on a stick. This is great for gnawing on over 3-4 innings.

I get where you're coming from. What I'm saying is that 1.) Are the Twins going to overpay just to smooth things over? and 2.) Do Buxton and his agent even want to sign an extension right now? If they expect his value, which is probably a bit low right now, to go up in the future, they likely will wait it out.

 

Like I said, I get the idea, I'm just not so sure how realistic it is
