Thoughts on Brian Dozier

Let me preface what will undoubtedly be a long entry by saying I am a Dozier fan. I have spoken to him at Spring Training a couple of times and like the young man. I believe he has been the Twins MVP for each of the last four seasons (counting this one) and I have no doubt that he is the team's best player at this point. Certainly, he isn't flawless, but...

All-Star Break Thoughts

lineup, power, rotation, bullpen and 1 more...
At the All-Star break, the Twins sit with a terrible 32-56 record and it is only that good because they've won the last three series against three AL West clubs.

Articles have been written and several threads have discussed trading just about every veteran on the roster. I submit to everyone that the position players ar...

Anatomy of a Big Inning (or two)

june 18, passed ball, jepsen
Yesterday, Ricky Nolasco and the Twins were cruising to a victory against the weakened, but still hated, New York Yankees. A funny thing happened on the way to the winner's circle--the Twins gave up seven runs in innings 7, 8, and 9 and were beaten despite getting two homers against Chapman in the ninth.

Here are some of the culprits: Kevin Jepsen entere...
