The Twins probably would feel a lot better about Bartolo Colon's debut against the Yankees on Tuesday if Byron Buxton was patrolling center field. The veteran Colon relies on command and good defense these days. The former he has lacked this year, and the latter was a lot better for the Twins before Buxton's injury.
Speaking of Colon's first start with the Twins, it's such a big deal that ESPN and FSN are both showing the game (7 p.m.).
"This is what champions do. They were sleepwalking through the first half but they knew what they needed to do in the 2nd half to come out with the W and they came out and executed. Love this team!"

"LeBron is frustrated, concerned about Cavs' ability to put together a roster that can better compete with Warriors."
