Byron Buxton is in the starting lineup tonight
I forgot how easily Byron Buxton glides under every fly ball. Twice tonight I've expected to see an outfielder sprinting into the gap after a possible extra-base hit, only to see him camped under it.
#MNTwins 6, Cardinals 3.
The record: 3-1
Homer Bailey had a heck of a Twins debut with five strong innings. Sanó got his first hit, Buxton returned with an RBI, Donaldson hit his first Twins homer and Polanco also went deep.
So Buxton comes close to making a great catch but deflects the ball. You know what he didn't do? He did not crash into the wall at full speed and this time when he stayed down on the warning track it was because he was mad at himself. That is a win!
Minnesota Twins center fielder Byron Buxton prepared to take batting practice before playing in his first game of the season. #MNTwins
I know Buxton is upset that he didn’t make that catch. As a point of reference for his superior athleticism, here is me, average human, attempting the same catch at Target Field. https://t.co/G55NKSjOt1
Ill take that over Buxton getting hurt again.
Watching Buxton, Rosario, and Kepler do the outfield celebration for the first time in x days. *chef’s kiss* https://t.co/QxlRavLr1o
Byron Buxton had a ball bounce out of his glove over the fence for a HR, he couldn't believe it https://t.co/jvHVpK4bmY

I am not on the Buxton train, I am team Cave. I said what I said.
There will be a very popular gif made of Buxton’s reaction of him not robbing that HR.
Byron Buxton makes that catch 99 times out of a 100. I’ve never seen a ball not stay in his glove. #MNTwins https://t.co/i5ElqBvxId
Trying to get my son to sleep and have the volume down, didn’t hear Jim Edmonds (!) suggest Byron Buxton may have been showboating.
JIM EDMONDS, of all Goddamn people, should never suggest anyone is showboating defensively unless comparing it to something he once did.
Wow Buxton....that ball would of never even cleared the wall
Yes and going to be even better with buxton back! Boom boom pow 💥
Buxton with Out No. 2.
In Soccer/Football there is the concept of own goal. Buxton's last feat was just like that. Should not be charged on May #MNTwins
I watched most of it muted. The giant faces of various twins figures behind home plate are menacing to opposing pitchers imo. Also Buxton looked awesome from what I saw. Also Donaldson finally homered.
Glad to hear the fans are component in the game again! Jk lol... Buxton back and another bomba is always good! Thanks for replying I was not keeping up with the game at all... Loons game went to PKs so I was like enthralled to the end! https://t.co/ViAsomvebp
The one thing I hate about not living in or even near MN is always having to watch games with the opposing teams announcers. These Cards guys went in about Buxton's new glove for the rest of the inning after his miss. May looks great rn tho
Agreed 💯 %. As someone else noted, I’ll trade a homer like that every once in a while for a full-season healthy Buxton.
Buxton will have a nightmare about this one, but at least no headache like Canseco probably did.
