    Whitey333 got a reaction from HrbieFan in As Buxton Hope Fades, Front Office Goes   
    I agree that Buxton is good.  However he is not great.  He is a career, yes did you see that, career ..247 hitter.  Don't even think of putting in with Carew and Puckett. Buxton was flailing away at the plate not too unlike Sano just very recently.  I like him and hope he stays but he hasn't proven much of anything yet except how to miss 63% of his teams games the past 4 years.  Don't compare to Donaldson big contract.  Yes he's older and has had some injuries but he has a very good and productive background.  Buxton does not.  Find a way to sign him but let's be reasonable and realistic.

    Great comments on Rocco.  I believe he has made his share of mistakes "managing" the team.  Some are definitely very questionable.  I also think to blame their 9-15 start on bad luck is wrong as well.  It was more indicative of future poor play. Come on bad luck?  Get real!  Baldelli, although part of the problem is also part of the solution.

    Wow.  Excellent article and great comments by all.  The biggest take away I get from this is the next couple of years for the Twins seems very bleak no matter which way they go.  They dug themselves a deep hole by signing bargain basement pitchers that are washed up.  That's the Twins way.  Until that philosophy changed I don't see us being contenders but pretenders.

    One of the most ridiculous articles I've ever read in sports.  Sano has been babied by  the Twins for way too long as it is.  Simply put he has been one of the least productive twins in a long time.  I don't think the writer watches him at all like the fans do.  Most of us cringe when he comes up.  It's strikeout time and rally killing time when he steps up to the plate.  It's long time to move on Sano.
