“He’s pretty much able to take part in everything we would want him to do,” manager Rocco Baldelli said. “He took part in everything, felt good, and I think we’re getting to a point where he can go out sometime soon and play in some rehab games and see how he’s feeling.” (via Do-Hyoung Park story on MLB.com)

Ooooooooohhhhh shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit….. I’d be willing to bet that Byron Buxton appearance was cancelled because he’s about to head to one of the Twins’ affiliates to begin his rehab assignment tomorrow????

The Minnesota Twins are currently playing at Target Field, where they are representing the white iPhones, in the latest battle of the ongoing saga in iPhone color superiority. The iPhone color superiority saga goes back…. well, like 5 years ago when they started making white iPhones. Nonetheless, it’s a legendary and heated fight that has now bled onto the professional baseball diamond. My iphone is white so I’m just glad I don’t have to trade it in like Chris.

Alright, back to Byron Buxton. Sorry, I just can’t get my mind off of these uniforms…

I’m excited to get Buxton back and I’m not going to make this into a blog about what Buxton should do to stay on the field because I’ve written that blog before. The Twins are a better team with Buxton offensively too, but this specific team needs Byron Buxton’s defense to help its pitchers keep runs off of the board, come playoff time, and the rest of this playoff race. So, I don’t want him to start worrying about where the walls are, now. I guess that’s something he’ll have to work on again this offseason and we’ll just have to cross our fingers until then.
