Buck has more HRs in 34 games this year than he did in 87 games last year. If he works on being more patient at the plate and drawing some more walks, I think he has a legitimate chance at being in the 30/30 club. He has the power and the speed.

Buxton in September;

 

.308/.308/.744/1.051, .430 wOBA, 175 wRC+, 7 XBH to 7 K.

 

And that's before today's homer.

Okay...

 

I gotta head out within half an hour. Not sure if i'll be able to check in again before the end of the game...

 

I'm leaving the game in good hands, right?

White Sox vs. Twins--Without looking Anderson and Abreu have been great. Robert and Jiménez up and down. Engle, Madrigal and McCann pesky and Moncada, Grandal, Mazara and especially Encarnacion cold. To me, the two young outfielders have determined the outcomes of the games so far. Get them out and the Twins win the games.

Out of all Twins pitchers right now I would trust Maeda the most against the Yankees.

OK offense, time for a crooked number. Lopez is better than he showed his first two starts again the Twins, but he's not that good.

Didn't Abreu used to be a rather chunky guy? He has certainly aged well.

Well at least the Twins offense is coming up this half inning, and by Twins offense I mean Buxton.

Looks like six from Maeda, who has been great again, but this offense..........is offensive.

Bet Grandal isn't going to ask for that pitch again
