Game 108 Royals at Twins

My heart has not been into this season. Dont get me wrong, I still love baseball more than all the other sports combined, but the Twins mediocre (at best) play, Byron Buxton and Joe Mauer missing chunks of the season due to injury, and a heavy workload for me has resulted in me missing a lot of games and me not really caring that I missed the games. Perhaps in 5 years I will quit all sports and not miss it. Jake "I missed out on being traded to a good team" Odorizzi for the Twins. Some dude named "Heath Fillmyer" throws for KC.

We better not allow another Drew Butera inside the parker this series.

  1. By my calculations the Twins have had four players with the first name of "Logan". Two of them are on the current team.

  2. I can honestly say I have never heard of Heath Fillmyer. To be fair, he's probably never heard of me, either. He's done well for the Royals in a small sample size (27.1 innings). He didn't do much for Omaha before being called up, but he had a fairly good year in AA Midland last year.

  3. Some wiggling to get out of that one. Odoreater isn't going to go very deep in the game at this pace.

  4. We no longer have the problem of each team having a Dozier and an Escobar when these teams get together. The Royals could use Brandon Maurer at some point, though.

      1. If you're saying "At least he didn't give up the lead", then yes, but that's a pretty low bar. Two runs in three innings is not good.

  5. Kaat was a good hitter for a pitcher, but he wasn't a good hitter for a hitter. His lifetime numbers are .185/.227/.267. As a Senator/Twin, he batted .191/.235/.275.

  6. As one who is in a profession where I can be required to move against my will, I don't have a whole lot of sympathy for players getting traded. It's true that I won't have to move at a moment's notice, like they do, but it's also true that I don't get paid millions of dollars like they do. The bottom line is that you know, when you choose that line of work, that this is part of it. You may not like it, but you deal with it or you find another line of work.

      1. Well, they all have to have, as George Carlin used to say, a place for their stuff. Apartment, hotel, something. It's not pleasant to have to move quickly, I'm sure. But again, you know going into it that it's part of the deal.

    1. It surprises me somewhat that players get attached to playing for a certain team outside of being friends with teammates, since half their games are on the road anyways and they can spend 4-5 months in the offseason living with their family wherever they want. I think it's just human nature to avoid change that's out of your control, unless you're just miserable where you're at.

  7. Rain delay farm report:

    Rochester is tied with Pawtucket 4-4 going to the ninth. Willians Astudillo hit a three-run homer.
    Chattanooga leads Mississippi 6-1 going to the ninth. Luke Raley hit a two-run homer.
    Fort Myers leads Florida 7-1 in the eighth. Brusdar Graterol pitched six innings, giving up an unearned run on five hits and a walk.
    Cedar Rapids trails Peoria 5-1 in the sixth. Ryan Jeffers is 2-for-2 with a walk.
    Elizabethton leads Pulaski 7-6 going to the bottom of the ninth. Gilberto Celestino is 3-for-5 with a double, raising his average to .563.
    The GCL Twins beat the GCL Red Sox 8-0. Kai-Wei Teng pitched five shutout innings.
    The DSL Twins split a doubleheader with the DSL Angels, losing 4-3 and winning 7-6. Victor Heredia was 3-for-4 with a home run in the nightcap.
