The Twins can take some good things away from season

Brian Dozier – Photo Credit – Keith Allison Another year, and yet another fifth place finish in the AL Central for the Minnesota Twins. The once proud franchise is heading towards their third last-place finish in the past four years and it is a far cry from the team that made the postseason six times during a nine-year span from 2002-10′. The problem is, they have not been...

Creeper of the Week: Mr. Schoop is a HARMONy!

The ghost of Mac Dre has been blowing up my dream phone and telling me that Jonathan Schoop is a MI Sleeper for January-Grey. He is reminding me of another MI who had a great finish last season and has been a breakout this year. (It's Brian Dozier if you're not following me.) I'm taking a scarcity position schmotato this week as I try to reinforce the dropping of dead...

Daily DraftKings Picks: Thursday, Sep 4

Yesterday we had a last-minute lineup change as Brian Dozier didn’t crack Minnesota’s starting nine. This change led me to make a few other swaps: 2B: Dozier out, Jose Altuve in C: Joe Mauer out, Josmil Pinto in 3B: Nick Castellanos out, Chris Davis in Unfortunately my new lineup didn’t save properly so the one you see below is the original version including Dozier. It finished...

Seeing 20/20: Twins' Dozier reaches single-season milestone

MINNEAPOLIS -- At one point earlier in the season, Twins second baseman Brian Dozier was asked about the possibility of joining the 30/30 club -- meaning 30 home runs and 30 stolen bases in one season. He was on pace for it at the time, but that 30/30 club is an elite one that not many major leaguers are members of. Only 22 players have joined it since 2000, with Angles outfielder...

Twins' Dozier making the most of scoring chances in 2014

MINNEAPOLIS -- Twins second baseman Brian Dozier put an emphasis on trying to get on base more often in 2014, a strategy that has worked to the tune of a career-high .333 OBP (on-base percentage). He's also been more aggressive on the base paths, stealing 19 bases -- five more than he had all of last season. Those factors have helped Dozier lead the league in another statistic...

Brian Dozier Reminds Everyone Baseball Players are Humans Too After Josh Willingham Trade

With thousands of player transactions, hundreds of different fantasy sports games and millions of dollars tossed at sports books each year, it is easy to forget that professional athletes are humans too and not simply objects. As the MLB trade deadline came and went, dozens of players were moved across the country to new homes. Most of those players have families and established...

Twins run into trouble in loss to Royals

In a one-run game, the little things can often be magnified. One missed opportunity could mean the difference between winning that one-run game or being on the losing end of it. Such was the case Wednesday when Minnesota fell 3-2 to Kansas City at Kauffman Stadium. Though the Twins led 1-0 into the sixth inning, a sequence of miscues -- on the basepaths, no less -- cost Minnesota...

Twins punchless at the plate in key spots vs. Cleveland

MINNEAPOLIS -- The Minnesota Twins have struggled to fire on all cylinders for the majority of the 2014 season. When the offense is clicking, the starting pitching falters. Sometimes the bullpen lets down the rotation. Other times, the lineup can't hit. While starting pitcher Yohan Pino was far from perfect Tuesday against Cleveland, the Twins' clutch hitting -- or lack thereof...

Hirsute Twins fan is back after swapping No. 7 for No. 2

Two years ago, a Twins fan created a rather unique Joe Mauer jersey when he shaved the Minnesota catcher's name and No. 7 into his back hair at a game in Kansas City. It appears he's back -- no pun intended -- and he's got a new jersey. A fan was spotted at Friday's game in Denver between the Mariners and Twins with the name "DOZIER" shaved into his upper...

Most egregious All-Star snubs

There are several notable players that were absent from the rosters for one reason or another, and while the bulk of these guys will end up making it (either through injuries or the Final Vote campaign), they shouldn’t have even had to wait this far – they should already be All-Stars.

Dozier still emulates Jeter after all these years

MINNEAPOLIS -- Brian Dozier swears it's simply coincidence that he wears the same jersey number as his childhood hero.

Heading into the following season, Dozier wanted to switch to a single-digit number, since that's what he'd typically worn throughout his career...
