    Sportsnation Chat with Buxton

    http://espn.go.com/sportsnation/chat...f-byron-buxton

    Looks like Sportsnation has a chat with BB at 1:30 today.

    Bonus: Buck is curretnly gracing the front page of ESPN's site.

    Pretty vanilla overall (as most athlete chats are) but I liked this answer -

    Austin R. (Savage, MN)

    Where do you think your bat fits in the lineup in the current twins roster??

    Byron Buxton (2:48 PM)

    Hopefully I'm more experienced and more disciplined at the plate to be a leadoff hitter. That's where I've hit most of my life. I feel confident there. Hopefully leadoff.

    I don't really care where he bats but I like that he cares.

    And it's interesting that a big-name, well-rounded prospect such as himself isn't campaigning for the middle of the lineup.

    Living within the constraints of a typical lineup I could certainly live with: Buxton Dozier? Mauer Arcia Sano sometime in 2015.

    He is a father, which is great, but interesting that Mauer's Twins and Buxton's first child are almost the same age....

    Just a cool random thought....

    I hope Bux realizes he's got a looong way to go , a lot of hard work left yet to do, well for at least 1 more year anyway.

    2.Miguel Sano (3B-AA) 3.Alex Meyer (SP-AA) 4. Kohl Stewart (SP-RK) 5. Eddie Rosario (2B-AA) 6. J.O. Berrios (P-A) 7. Josmil Pinto (C-AAA) 8. A.B. Walker (OF-A) 9. L. Thorpe (SP-RK) 10.

    With those names I'd go Buxton, Hicks, Mauer, Sano, Arcia, whoever the DH is, Dozier, Rosario. But could flip around Rosario/Dozier/Hicks in pretty much any fashion.

    I think Sano is going to be your prototypical clean-up guy. He's not going to have the batting avg. (compared to Mauer) for the 3-spot, and Buxton/Hicks will score a ton of runs in front of them.

    If you made it through Tuesday's Hangout, Seth and I spent about 10 minutes near the end of the 113 minutes we talked discussing the Twins lineup once the prospects are ready.
