    Brian Dozier

    In addition to being one of the best all-around players in baseball so far this season Twins second baseman Brian Dozier apparently goes around bragging about how he can solve a Rubik’s Cube in under two minutes.

  10. Paul Molitor is working his magic in Minnesota

    May 12, 2014, 3:45 PM EST

    Brian Dozier

    For years tons of Minnesotans wanted Hall of Famer (and local boy) Paul Molitor added to the Twins’ coaching staff because he’s always been touted as a great baseball mind and specifically an excellent base-running teacher.

  12. There are conflicting reports about Ryan Doumit’s future as a catcher

    Jan 26, 2014, 4:40 PM EST

    Ryan Doumit

    The Braves acquired Ryan Doumit in a trade with the Twins last month, expecting him to contribute mostly off the bench as a pinch-hitter. Doumit had suffered a concussion in August. While he made a few starts behind the dish upon his return in mid-August, he contributed only as a pinch-hitter, DH, and occasional outfielder…

  13. Twins sign Jason Bartlett

    Jason Bartlett Getty

    Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com reports that Jason Bartlett has agreed to a minor-league deal with Minnesota, where he started at shortstop from 2005-2007 before being traded to Tampa Bay in the Delmon Young-Matt Garza swap. Bartlett was injured and ineffective in 2012 and sat out all of this season, so at age 34 there’s no…

    Aug 30, 2013, 11:30 PM EST

    Texas Rangers pitcher Yu Darvish delivers a pitch against the Houston Astros in the second inning of their MLB American League baseball game in Houston

    Rangers starter Yu Darvish brought a no-hitter into the seventh inning for the third time this season, but things quickly started to unravel after the right-hander began the inning with a 2-0 lead. Darvish walked Brian Dozier, then fell behind Chris Herrmann 2-0. He then threw a 91 MPH cutter over the plate, which Herrmann…

    New York Yankees' Gardner follows through on walk off solo home run to defeat Detroit Tigers during the ninth inning of their MLB American League baseball game in New York

    Yankees 5, Tigers 4: If I told you that Mariano Rivera blew two saves in a three game series you’d probably assume the Yankees had a bad series. Except in this case they won both of the games Mo blew. Baseball is weird. Miguel Cabrera homered off of him again on Sunday — he’s only…

  16. Anibal Sanchez exits start in the fourth inning

    Jun 15, 2013, 9:35 PM EST

    Atlanta Braves v Detroit Tigers

    Tigers starterAnibal Sanchez was taken out of tonight’s game against the Twins after three and two-thirds innings due to a shoulder injury, reports Chris Iott. The Tigers had skipped Sanchez’s turn in the rotation last week, making manager Jim Leyland anxious to see his right-hander perform tonight. It didn’t go well, as Sanchez allowed two…

    Groundhog Day

    Pirates 1, Tigers 0: Jim Leyland was in the Virgin Islands once. He met a girl. they ate lobster, drank piña coladas. At sunset, they made love like sea otters. That was a pretty good day. Why couldn’t he get that day over, and over, and over? Or, well, at least two out of three days. It’d…

  18. Joel Hanrahan exits game with injury

    May 6, 2013, 11:25 PM EST

    Joel Hanrahan Getty

    The Red Sox have already lost one closer to the disabled list. They lost another tonight as Joel Hanrahan exited tonight’s game against the Twins after allowing a game-tying solo home run to Brian Dozier that reset the game at five apiece. Hanrahan got to 1-1 against his final batter, Josh Willingham, before throwing three straight…

  19. Tigers lose because Jim Leyland’s closer-by-committee really wasn’t

    Apr 3, 2013, 7:40 PM EST

    Jim Leyland

    Jim Leyland said all of the right things this spring after Bruce Rondon failed to step up and win the Tigers’ closing gig. He didn’t seem the least bit disturbed to go with a closer-by-committee situation while waiting for things to shake out. And then he went and seemingly abandoned the idea in the second…

  20. The Twins have finally had enough of Brian Dozier

    Aug 14, 2012, 11:43 PM EST

    Brian Dozier

    Shortstop Brian Dozier got the bad news after riding the pine for the second straight game Tuesday; the Twins sent him down and called up Pedro Florimon following the loss to the Tigers. The timing is decidedly odd. There was plenty of reason to send Dozier down a month and a half ago — I…

    San Francisco Giants v Pittsburgh Pirates

    We have reached the All-Star break. Which means that this is the last And That Happened for a week. Unless there’s a temporal anomaly or something, which has been known to happen … Pirates 13, Giants 2: Andrew McCutchen was added to the Home Run Derby the other day. He got some early practice yesterday, smacking…

  22. Brian Dozier is still in the majors? Really?

    Jun 27, 2012, 2:03 PM EST

    Brian Dozier

    There’s something to be said for letting a kid play through some growing pains, but this has gotten absurd. Twins shortstop Brian Dozier just committed his 11th error of the season, letting a routine grounder roll right between his legs to give the White Sox a run in the first inning. Even though he wasn’t…
