Hey Twins fans! Here are some lunch links to enjoy:

  • Brian Dozier is giving a lot of credit for his early success this season to new Twins coach Paul Molitor. "It's been night and day compared to every other year, as far as dissecting pitchers, knowing exactly what they do, their tendencies, stuff like that," Dozier told FOX Sports North. Hmm...
  • Just for good measure, Brian Dozier also spoke about his Christianity in front of ten thousand people at Comerica Park Sunday morning for the weekly Detroit Baseball Chapel.
  • TwinsCentric's Seth Stohs takes a look at Tommy John's, the Twins, and what could maybe be done to reduce injuries for pitchers.
  • A chance meeting with a major-leaguer as a child led Sam Fuld to pursue his baseball dream despite having diabetes, and now he's trying to pay it forward.
  • Former Twins Justin Morneau has been raking it in for the Rockies, and talked to MLB.com about his evolving study habits over his career (and our friends over at Purple Row note that it's not just the altitude in Colorado contributing to Morney's hot start).
  • Ron Gardenhire complained about the false perception that he doesn't get along with umpires after he was ejected from the game on Sunday. ("That's blatantly wrong. I get along with them all the time.")
