Game 75: In which the MN Twins try to Hit the KC Royals, atKC

Let's see if they can do it!

Unfortunately, they've had trouble doing it lately.
Fortunately, they appear to be putting out about the best lineup they could.
Unfortunately, Jakob Junis is one of those dominant pitchers who always picks the Twins apart, right?
Fortunately, the Twins are countering with the always brilliant Martin Perez.
Unfortunately, I have to wrap up this preview now.
Fortunately, it's because I have to go out to dinner with my family.
Unfortunately, now I have to wait to do that while my daughter changes into something more appropriate.
Fortunately, that means I can write more preview.
Unfortunately, I've got nothing more to add.

  1. I'm not using this as a blanket excuse for everything, but it seems like the Twins haven't had a whole lot of luck lately, either.

  2. At some point the Twins are going to start playing well again, but we don't seem to have reached that point yet.

  3. Can't go without mentioning Herb Washington when Terrance Gore bats. I wish he did better to make teams seriously consider the position.

    1. Yeah, a dedicated pinch-runner who gets caught stealing over 35% of the time is not a compelling test case for that “position.” Neither Dick or Jack really made that connection.

  4. The Royals gave the Twins a couple of runs to get them back into the game, the Twins are poised to give the runs right back. Is that Minnesota Nice?

  5. I've decided that Sano's problem is that he hates running. He only wants to ever strike out or hit a HR. Everything else requires running of some sort, so he prefers 2 of the 3 true outcomes.
