    One Twin Above Average in 2013 in All: Running, Defense, Hitting

    And it isn't who you might think.....

    Based on Fangraphs and from Beyond the Boxscore

    It's actually a pretty exclusive list, with only 21 players in the majors making it.

    Actually, that's who I thought it was going to be.

    And if there is anyone who missed it, there's a nice column on him on the PP site:

    Hats off to him (and to his fiancee) for putting their labor to good use.

    (Oh, but he could stop tweeting hunting photos any time. )

    I guess that's true, but for running I was thinking of above average for position. Not sure why I had that stuck in my head, especially since I wasn't thinking that way for the other two categories.

    There were just so few bright spots last year -- pretty much had a 50/50 chance of having the right guy in mind no matter what!

    Thanks for posting the list, though. Interesting to see the company he was keeping.

    Was Brian Dozier the MVP of the team last year?

    Pretty sure is was Joe and his .880 OPS.
    I'm on a whiskey diet. I've lost 3 days already.

    Should have been, but the award was given to Mauer.

    Oh I wasn't aware that the team gave that out. To me Joe Mauer doesn't qualify because he didn't play enough games.

    I think it is actually the media that makes the awards. They've been announced but I don't think they'll be presented until January when they have their Diamond Awards dinner.

    I also place a lot of value on someone being in the line-up for most of the season.

    Dozier did win "most improved" and "media good guy". Story here: http://mlb.mlb.com/news/article.jsp?...r_min&c_id=min

    Glad to see 'my guy' getting some good press. He was my favorite player last year.

    No surprise here. Wish I could see those hunting photo's though. My season wasn't so good.
