"One of the great things about games having started is that I’ll have more and better information for projecting lineups. Rocco Baldelli has gone with that top three when those three players have played, with Miguel Sano, Sanchez, and Max Kepler batting in that order as well. (Correa hasn’t played yet.) I understand the idea of batting Byron Buxton leadoff, I just don’t agree with it given the OBP skills the Twins have at other spots. Even just flipping Buxton to second or third would be a better use of his talents."
