“MLB.com: Speaking of laying off the wall: I’ve seen you get hurt because you hit the wall so many times. Have you thought about laying off the wall?
Buxton: There is no point in it. If you are going to come out here and you want to win, you do what you have to do to help your team win. You have but one life. I’m going to make the most of it while I can.”
While we’ve seen a more effective hitter by this new approach, the health is status quo.
Will Buxton ever “stay healthy” with this approach? When he’s on the field, he’s game changing, but he’s such a part time player.
I really wanted Bill Larson to point blank ask (never gonna happen) him if he’s willing to do what it takes to stay on the field. He hurts himself and the team by getting injured. He needs to stay healthy.
Is this the defining season for Buxton? Will he figure it out, despite what he says?
