The eternal frustration of Byron Buxton

Everyone has a person in their life that they irrationally give second chances to.

Asking Brian Dozier About His Missing Home Runs

Last year, Brian Dozier hit 42 home runs for the Twins. He’d never hit 30 before that, so it was fair to wonder if the power was repeatable.
