Monday Morning Minnesota: Santana the mentor, Dozier on trades, and extremely free agency.

A bunch of things to peruse on your Monday morning.

Welcome to Monday. I hope it was correctly preceded by a Sunday, and soon to be followed by a Tuesday. If this is the case, congratulations! You are not lost in space adrift in a wonky time submarine.

Today’s soundtrack is a continuation of yesterdays as SooFoo Fan and I have decided to put forth a concerted effort to make all of you know this soundtrack as well as we apparently do. We are steadfast in this effort and it will last at least the rest of this article.

  • Brian Dozier spent a lot of time in the rumor mill last offseason, and now as the trade deadline looms on the not-so-distant horizon Dozier’s name again may be springing up soon while the Twins negotiate with uncertainty surrounding their status as buyers or sellers. If Dozier was in charge though? He wouldn’t trade himself. I now want to watch a Baseball player manage his own team in a baseball sim. Has Trevor May done this yet?
  • Besides being a nifty starting pitcher on the game-side of things. Ervin Santana has been a real asset working bullpen sessions with youngsters Jose Berrios and Adalberto Mejia.
  • Jack Moore of the Hardball Times explored the idea of amateur free agency in baseball. My immediate hot take was that it would mean all players ever are Yankees or Dodgers from now on, but to be honest I’ve never understood economics because what even is money?

btw, YOU are the next digidestined.
