GameChat – Royals @ Twins, 7:10pm

I’m going to call JC’s earlier post from today a quality pre-game assessment so I’m going to skip it. Just go read the earlier post and I think you are definitely ready for tonight.

Not sure any of us predicted a win that big when this game first started.. it was an ugly first inning for Liriano and a bit of some ugly fielding besides. But Delmon & Mauer did their part to get the bats going and they both get donuts (Young’s should be the health concious variety) for their excellent efforts!

The real highlight of the game was welcoming Trevor Plouffe back to the big leauges and his version of saying thank you with a MONSTER homerun to the left field upper decking was a thing of beauty. It also came at a key moment in the game that really changed the momentum the Twins way.  For that reason, he gets today’s BOD!
