Do Android Doziers Dream of Electric Stadiums?

The Twins sent out a video to their season ticket holders asking them to stick around a little bit longer. In the 3-plus minute video  PotMinT Dave St. Peter, manager Paul Molitor and future shampoo spokesperson, Brian Dozier give reasons to re-up for another year. They talk about looking for "new leadership," "getting back to the Twins brand of baseball" (i.e., The Twins Way), "Working to do the Little Things Right™," and how important season ticket holders are to the Twins. In short, boldly going back to the future, doing things like they did in the 90s, all that and a bag of chips.

Joe Mauer is Done... Forever?

Or at least that's what the Strib's Patrick Reusse "100%" speculates. He goes on to say he's never been convinced Joe's problems are related to something as nebulous as a "concussion." I've apparently hit my paywall limits at the Strib, so you can click this bait here and read it for yourself or here's NBC Sports story on it.
