  1. Nothing about Buxton's mentality is soft or deserves that criticism. Byron has no control over the fact that his body can't hold up to the rigors of play. He's clearly a fine tuned athlete and takes his craft seriously, his genetics just betrayed all that talent they bestowed with fragility. If scheduled sitting is how they get 100 games out of Buxton, fine by me because we've managed to get that exactly once in 8 years.
  2. Since that was what was said....yes. Of course he burned through our best arms early to preserve a tie game. As he should.
  3. So wait....people are complaining that we used our best bullpen arms first and kept the other team from scoring as long as possible?
  4. Byron Buxton was gifted the genetics of a marvelous baseball player but also the genetics that cannot endure the rigors of playing baseball. I sure hope we aren't in for 7 years of this yo-yo.
  5. Making trade judgements after 3 months of baseball after the trade seems like a poor methodology.
  6. I may not agree with all the particulars of this, but it shares my sentiment: he deserves to be up and playing every day. I would have Arraez/Urshela splitting 1B, MIF stays put, OF stays put (Kep/Larnach/Buck), catcher stays put, and DH continues to be used as a way of keeping people in the lineup but giving them a rest. That leaves 3B and he should play there if he feels comfortable there.
  7. Archer deserved that strike three, but the way he handled that was fantastic. You can see he's not the same guy he was a few years ago. This could end up being a sneaky brilliant signing.
  8. You're asking me to preemptively dismiss baseball victories that haven't even happened yet. I want off this ride Mr. Serling.
  9. I don't know how you expect anyone to make a rational argument when your point somehow includes three weeks of games that haven't even been played yet.
  10. This response doesn't feel like you put a lot of time into digesting the problem. Your entire argument is that the first 30 games can be dismissed because the schedule was easy. Yet the next three weeks are even easier! That's the reality of 2022 in the AL as we sit today. I'd argue if the first 30 are at all atypical it may actually have been atypically difficult relative to the rest of the year. You seem really resistant to actually examining if your "easy" declaration has any validity.
  11. No one is forcing anyone to draw conclusions. I'm not. As for the rest: They are literally about to play an entire month of games against ridiculously putrid competition...by your own acknowledgment!!!!....and STILL the last 30 are the easy part? Please...digest that for a second and perhaps understand my frustration with the problems in your argument.
  12. But winning a bunch of games only happens by winning against bad teams a lot. If playoff success is what ultimately matters (totally fine)...it might be worth remembering those are a vicious small sample too and our historically brutal recent past might have us all a bit extra skeptical
