Dozier's Season

by stringer bell on 07-03-2014 at 12:54 PM
We have just passed the midpoint of the season and the Twins are a season low seven games below .500. A big reason why the Twins are as good as they are is their second baseman, Brian Dozier. Dozier is currently going through his third slump of the season and the batting average is down to .232. His homers have leveled off and his OPS has sunk to .762. However, I think the first half of the season has been a success for Dozier.

Brian leads the club with 15 homers and is second

Twins Utility Infielders

by stringer bell on 06-22-2014 at 12:26 AM
I have been thinking about the job Eduardo Escobar has done this year. He has been cast as a three-position utility guy--someone who could fill in for a while at second, short or third, but someone who couldn't hold down a regular job.Since the Kelly era the Twins have employed at least one guy on the roster who has the ability to play second, short and third. The guys who have come to mind are Al Newman, Denny Hocking, Jeff Reboulet, Nick Punto, Jamie Carroll, and the previously mentioned Eduardo

Shortstop Pecking Order

by stringer bell on 05-17-2014 at 11:57 AM
Right now, the Twins have a wealth of shortstop candidates. Conventional wisdom is that shortstops aren't platooned because working with the keystone partner is so important. Here is my view on the shortstops and my best guess to what will happen. I invite anyone else to comment and offer their opinion.

1) Eduardo Escobar. Escobar is starting most games right now and why not? He's hitting over .340 and he's pretty good in the field. News flash. Eduardo Escobar won't hit .340

Danny Santana & the .1% Solution

by stringer bell on 05-11-2014 at 10:03 PM
Danny Santana is a major league prospect. He isn't in the Twins' Top Ten and he isn't a Top 100 prospect in minor league baseball. Most players with his pedigree don't become stars, but some do and I imagine some become All-Stars and most likely some have become Hall of Fame players.

Santana's strength as a prospect are his raw tools. He has great speed and a strong arm. His minor league stats have been unremarkable. Finally, he is a prospect in a position of need for his team.

The Twins need more Brian Doziers

by stringer bell on 05-03-2014 at 10:14 PM
Brian Dozier wasn't a high draft choice. He had a breakout minor league season in 2011 and became a prospect for the Twins mostly because of the dearth of talent at shortstop, which was then his position. Dozier was then assigned to Rochester and got a promotion to the Twins after a hot start in Triple A. Brian's rookie season was by most measures disappointing and ended with a demotion back to Rochester without a September recall.

2013 looked to be a year of decision for Dozier.
