It's almost as if nobody here remembers Torii breaking his foot on the Fenway wall.

I would have to call it agressively reckless. I didn't get to see the game or replays, but when you look at the photo above, the ball is hitting the wall about a foot off the ground. And Bux is leaping and crashing into the wall, looking down at the ball? Apparently he had no clue where the ball was. Not a bright play. He needs to keep in mind the season is 162 games, not just 1 week. Maybe some classroom time with Rocco and Hunter followed by practice on the field.

And....Buxton is on the bench again today against the Phillies.

There was an article several months ago about Jackie Bradley and how he has studied how to handle the wall. Seemed very savvy about it.

To me, Buxton needs to start being more cautious around the wall. Period.

I wish he had gotten up and gone after the ball after he misplayed it. Immediately.
