I sort of agree with this take. I actually see the beginning and end of this lineup as the strengths. I don't like Donaldson, as he has shown his overrated side. Cruz has GOT to be due for regression, and Sano is a K-machine. I do like Rosario, but the hitters surrounding him stink of red flags.
That being said, the end of the lineup is very promising. Garver/Arraez/Buxton could very well be the best 7/8/9 combo in baseball. (I am a full believer that Buxton is due for his true breakout season...he was last year until he got hurt.) Of course, there is gamble, but this seems like another mash-city lineup to me.
