Time to diss Dozier

Posted by huhguy , 22 May 2018 · 395 views

Why would I diss Dozier? Have you seen what happened to Grossman and Rodney after I dissed them?

Rodney has been phenomenal, Robbie much improved so here goes Dozier.

Dozier looks sooooo old...I think he's still upset about the Twins refusal to extend him...um Brian you are old and Gordon is coming get it?

So old man, start carrying your weight or at least hit it!

(might take a few games but his improvement is virtually assured)

If nothing else, Dozier has to have a career year, but with a changeover happening in the Twins infield for 2019, you have to ask...do we care? Of course we do...a powerful hitting Dozier means the Twins win.

 

But come 2019, who is on first, what is playing second, who is the shortstop, and where is Sano.

 

Mauer could be gone as well as Dozier from free agency. Escobar, too. 

 

Whew?! Contemplate that for a moment.

 

Glad Gordon has been called up to Rochester. Maybe he will see sometime in the major in September grooming his way to start somewhere in the infield in 2019.

 

Don’t know if it was last year or the year before, but he got out of his horrible slump then by going to RF. Tonight both of his doubles were to right and right center. When this happened before-looking to go the opposite way- he absolutely took off and was a monster for the rest of the season. The homers will return for him then when he’ll get better pitches to hammer. Glad for Brian!

correlation and causation. There is a Michael McDonald song there somewhere

I noticed that last night too. Looks like a change of plan which will hopefully break him out.
