    Dave Cameron: Dozier Baseball's New Most Underrated Player

    Nice article on Dozier:

    If Dozier can become Ben Zobrist, I'll be very happy.

    It might have already been posted but there is another great Dozier article on there as well. The saber community is loving a Twin, I don't think that has happened before.

    I'm glad to see Dozier's starting to gain national attention. Here's hoping some of that "spotlight' helps him make the All Star Game this year - he's earned it.

    That is a really entertaining story by Cameron - if you're a Twins fan. Cameron loves Zobrist and sees Dozier as the second coming. I loved this comparison:

    Date back his performance one calendar year, rolling the last four months of last season and the first two months of this season into a total line, here's how he did from May 21, 2013 through May 20 of this season: 158 games, 696 plate appearances, 35 doubles, two triples, 28 home runs, 80 walks, 130 strikeouts and 23 stolen bases.
    The total line adds up to a 122 wRC+, and that's just hitting; when factoring in baserunning and defense, Dozier has been a plus-5 WAR player over the last calendar year. The only American League second baseman with a higher WAR during that timeframe? Zobrist, of course.

    Those are legitimate "fun" with numbers.
