And from the other angle:

His ankles are twisted. His knees are bent in ways that don't look very comfortable. And that facial expression doesn't exactly scream success. Dozier is hardly a slouch at the plate. He's one of the better hitters in the American League. That doesn't mean that he's immune from Miller's nasty slider.

This is just not fair.
