And the most anticipated trade piece the Twins were working with will finally pack his bags and head west.

After 3 years filled with rumors of trades to the LA Dodgers, it’s finally happening. Brian Dozier is heading to Hollywood. Dozier has been a staple in Minnesota for a long time and fans fell for his grittiness and slight southern drawl. The hair wasn’t half-bad either… Without knowledge or trust in what the Twins have in the farm system, fans will not be happy about this. Hopefully Jorge Polanco, Nick Gordon, and Royce Lewis all make us look back at this trade with a smile….

Even more ideal, would be some success with the haul we are getting back in the Dozier deal.

It looks like Raley is the guy the Twins were targeting..

The Twins fans (who are still around) can take a deep breath. Dozier, as loved as he is, was only under contract for one more season. It looks like Kyle Gibson, who still has a year left after this season, looks like he is safe. Even Rodney is safe and according to Doogie, may be coming back for a second season with the Minnesota Twins? Either way, it looks like this season’s garage sale is over, barring something strange:

We’ll be back once that actually happens to recap all of this madness and see where it leaves our favorite baseball team, going forward.
