Safe at home: Buxton relishes comfort of staying with Twins

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) The first offer came from the Minnesota Twins nearly five years ago, initiating their attempt to sign center fielder Byron Buxton to a long-term contract and keep a potential superstar from reaching free agency and a bidding frenzy on the open market.

Getting this $100 million deal done required ample patience, creativity and respect from both sides, but the tipping point was simply the deep desire by Buxton to stay in Minnesota with the only franchise he's ever been with.

He'll be with the Twins for at least the next seven seasons, with a full no-trade clause to ensure it.
