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...

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.

Are 20/20 Players a Thing of the Past?

There are currently just two players in all of baseball that have both 20 home runs and 20 stolen bases. As of five days ago, there weren’t any. Carlos Gomez joined the club by hitting a home run on August 17th, while Brian Dozier reached the feat just yesterday, recording his 20th steal. With only a handful of other players that could potentially join them, are 20/20 players...

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: runs...

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.
