    Dozier's been great on the base paths this season, even better than last year. BsR backs that up. His instincts have gotten so good that it's hard for me to find fault with his tendency to be a little aggressive at times, especially with instances like that one where the Twins have the lead and there are two out. Not a big deal.

    That said, not doing it again would be good.
    I'm on board with Dozier. There is a lot more to be concerned about than Dozier...like our pitching?

    So frustrating, Corriea can give you 5 good innings, the bullpen has 37 rhp & their rested. Ugh

    I think the proper play is to tag up, start to second, but stop if you can see the throw can be cut off. If the throw is high, or way off line, you keep going.

    And Dick just said they sent Correia out for the sixth because we don't have 13 pitchers anymore? I miss the days with only 11 pitchers.

    There is still a lot of baseball to play, and I am going to be able to eat restaurant dinners for the next 30+ days.

    There is a connection between these two observations? "Life is good"?

    I have no doubt that we will rally our arses off. Suzuki will figure into it somehow.

    A double play would be nice, then a comeback.
