The Twins come into this one now boasting a winning record in the all-powerful AL Central. They won two yesterday – can they do me the courtesy of one win today?
Esmerling Vasquez gets the start – the first in his career – for the hometown nine. Luis Mendoza, also known as “Meh,” goes for the Royals in a game that nobody outside of this site cares about.
The Royals were 17-11 in August. Did you know? I did! Well, as of a few moments ago. Well, good for them. Every time I get down about how bad the Twins are, I think of franchises with prolonged streaks of futility that the 1993-2000 Twins only wish they could match.
