Thank you for your post.I think a super-majority of people on this site would love to read a headline something like "Twins ink MVP Buxton to 10 year $400 million deal" in, say, 2021.
I know I don't have the right to speak on behalf of "everyone", but, nonetheless, I am guessing that "everyone" wants Buxton to succeed.The truth is, absent 2 months in 2017, he hasn't.As I've posted numerous times, an extension now makes zero sense from either side.
If he hits .190 this coming year in 35 games, both sides know what they have-- an injury-prone head case who can't hit a breaking ball.
If, however, he wins both golden and platinum) glove and silver slugger, I concur the Twins should back the Brinks truck up to his home.
There is just so much uncertainty, I don't understand why either side would want to settle now.
