It's unclear whether he is grading the actual production from the position or if he is grading the handling of that position.
Either way, not giving an "A" to 2B, (which I believe 100% of the innings played by the Twins this year has been Brian Dozier), is completely asinine.

Reusse to me just seems so pointless to read/follow these days, he is clearly one of those old timers who has been doing this gig for far too long where he comes off as old and grumpy in the majority of his "articles", his demeanor seriously reminds me of what would happen when I would wake up my grandpa from a nap when I was younger.
The whole "if you disagree with these I don't care" quip sums it up perfectly, he clearly has no desire to adapt to the changes in media. The Tribune should just offer him a severance package to let him retire (I don't care about his radio show as I prefer KFAN), bring in some younger talent that actually has enthusiasm to write about the sport.
Sid at least is kinda funny in a harmless slightly clueless at times old man sort of way, Reusse is just a curmudgeon."You miss 100% of the shots you don't take"- L. Harvey Oswald

Reusse will take a position counter to informed opinion just out of spite. I will still read what he says because he is a great writer and has country club access, but "I don't care what you think" sums up his feelings pretty good towards the sports fans when it comes to the Twins, Vikings, etc.
Example of his Gopher football take: He attacks Jerry Kill mercilessly and has said that the Brewster years were not that bad (and his taken some digs at Mason for good measure). Go figure that one out.
That said, he knows the state prep scene better than anyone and has been telling those stories like a pro, for his whole career. Bravo for that.
