Happy Saturday! Welcome back to our r
egularly scheduled a day late, entirely TJ’s fault, discussion. This week, I pose the question to you: If you could steal any one trait (athletic or otherwise) from a Twins player, what would it be (and who would it be from)?
As we are dealing with professional athletes here, there is no shortage of good traits to choose from. All of these guys won the genetic lottery in some way, shape, or form, and now you get to pick the best of the best.
Nelson Cruz’s legendary strength, Byron Buxton’s supernatural speed, and Luis Arraez’s eagle eyes are only a few of the good choices to pick from. I certainly wouldn’t blame anyone for picking Max Kepler’s good looks or Eddie Rosario’s charisma.
What would I pick? I’d have to go with Buxton’s speed. With those kind of wheels at my disposal, I’d be a surefire pick to play some kind of sport at a high level, whether it be college or pros in football or baseball or track. The young centerfielder is as gifted as they come.
What do you think? Who would you like to do a “Space Jam”-style trait swap with?
