    A 20 million a year contract would be called a team friendly contract if he makes it through the year without more injury time. Considering Donaldson is shy of 22. prime years of Buxton should be worth more, That is if healthy.

    You do not know the quality of the opponent until the point of the season you play them. The September schedule. The Rays and Jays can be worse than they were last year, The young talent of any of the AL central could develop over the year making the fall part of the schedule more difficult.

    If you look at last year's DH stats for the White Sox, mediocrity for Vaughn would be an improvement. Learn on the job could work, or fail.

    Bigger bases. Why?
    Infielder positioning rules. If  they are going to do that why not put 7 x marks on the field and say this is where you must be for all position players
    If they do not want pickoff moves insist the runner has to be standing on the base at the start of the pitch

    The shooting percentages in the NBA are not that much changed from historical levels. It is still hard enough for them to hit a shot

    From the New York Times
     
    In Class AAA, the size of first, second and third base will increase to 18 inches square, from 15.
    In Class AA, at least four defensive players must be positioned on the infield, each with both feet completely in front of the outer boundary of the infield dirt. In the second half, M.L.B. may require two infielders to be positioned entirely on each side of second base.
    In high-Class A, pitchers must step off the rubber before attempting a pickoff throw, and in both low-Class A leagues, pitchers will be limited to two step-offs, with a third resulting in an out or a balk.
    In the low-Class A Southeast League, umpires will use an automated ball-strike system (A.B.S.) to call pitches.
    In the low-Class A Southwest League, on-field timers will enforce the time between pitches, innings and during pitching changes.

    The "always injured" Mauer after his rookie season averaged playing over 110 games a season at catcher while DH about 20 times a year. That is far different than Buxton. There is no comparison to what Mauer produced at his position compared to Buxton.
