Grit Seeing dozier and Escobar go suck.. but life goes on whether you agree with your front office or not you just hope to win ball games as a player , coach, or fan. I remember when I was young I love playing baseball and football in fact football was my favorite sport up until I was 17..I remember my dad telling me stories about the twins 2 World Series wins since I was born after both so didn't get see them we had blue coller players... and even now just something about those 2 twins teams never a favorite just blue collar team with grit. and you can probably say that about all twins team through there history.. I guess that why when I turn 17 I started to watch more twins games and and gain back that interested .. than we had guys like Trevor Plouffe and Brian Dozier and Escobar who were just coming up to the club or had been here a year or two before.. who were just gritty players they play ding up never had the greatest batting average probably will be .240 to .260 career batting average.. but they had that blue collar mentally they weren't every kids favorite like the Jeters and the A-rods.. but they were my favorite they gave it their all every chance they got to play and had some unexpected pop to there bats.. seeing Plouffe go suck but you saw it coming at the end of 2016 with dealing with injuries and sano on the rise we had no room for him in the infieald.. I thought than that dozier would finish as twin his whole career and Escobar was a utility guy and has been a pleasant surprise the past two years getting to show he's a every day player I too thought would finish his career as twin.. but thing about baseball is you always got some one younger waiting to take your spot.. so I hope sano , plonco , and who ever is our next second basemen , most likely Gordon I hope that that grit and mentality rubs off on them..
