Twins: Byron Buxton Homers in Minnesota Home Opener

[Box Score]

Byron Buxton is off to some kind of start. He hit his fourth home run of the early season in Minnesota’s home opener on Thursday, and it leads all of baseball.

This is something to keep an eye on. Plus, he’s hitting balls 452 feet like he hit this one, so they’re not cheapies.

Finally, as time goes on, Buxton’s talent is starting to shine through and normalize. 

If Buxton can just stay healthy, the Twins have a 7 to 10 WAR player on their hands, and possible MVP candidate. After all this time, it’s so great to see. He’s a really likable star and there’s a handful of people like us who have certainly kept the faith.
