    Twins ?

    The tough part with Buxton is we've seen a couple September flashes. Is that all they were though, flashes? Flashes against some other non-contending teams trotting out some young guys trying to get big league experience? I'm too lazy to look back but I'd imagine that is part of why Buxton has looked good in September previously. Or is it more than a flash? Can he get healthy and put together a consistent defensive and offensive season? As others have noted, his defense is elite. But so far Cave seems to be a suitable defensive replacement. No, he 's no Buxton, but he's suitable, and he seems to have a little more pop offensively. I'm sure some analytics guru can tell me that's completely false, but that's just the feeling I get from watching the team for the better part of the season.

    Is that department connected to this association in any way?:

    Sounding like Dozier to the Dodgers.

    Twins ?

    Agreed on all of those things. I don't mean to point the finger at only Brian but he is the one that seems to be talking about it the most.

    I've always liked Dozier, I think he's a good teammate and clubhouse guy, but hearing rumors about him not being happy with the organization for selling right now.... Try hitting over .250 on the year and maybe your team wouldn't be selling, Brian.

    That's your opinion. My opinion is that shootouts suck.

    The other problem with the NHL system, like I said earlier, is that teams get a point just for making it to OT. You see too many games where teams just shut down and play for OT to make sure they get one point.

    It depends what side of the tie you're on IMO. If your team gives up a late lead and end up in a tie it leaves you thinking your team really gave one away. If your team comes back late to even the score and escape with a tie you kind of breath a sigh of relief feeling like you really stole a point. Ties were a part of hockey for a looooooooooooooooong time. I guess I don't understand the need to have a 'winner'.

    I think less games would go to OT if the NHL didn't have any idiotic point system that gives a point simply for just getting to OT.

    That would make sense.

    I hope they can find a way to resign Escobar in the offseason.

    Twins ?

    Agreed. Think any realists should be able to tell that even if the Twins somehow miraculously run down Cleveland, they don't stand a great chance of going anywhere in the postseason. Especially with as good as the AL is. At the same time, if the organization sees any chance of making the playoffs, it's tough to turn down a couple home playoff games.

    If there are points on the line, I will stay to watch and cheer for my team. Doesn't mean I have to like methods by which points are obtained.

    That's true, and I'm guessing that is the point college hockey will get to.
