GameChat – Twins @ Royals #2, 3:10pm

We’ll see if anyone has the ability or interest to catch a day game with the Twins right now… that always is an interesting experiment anyway but we all have to admit that we don’t go to a lot of extra effort to catch a game when we don’t know if that effort will be rewarded with good baseball – notice I didn’t say winning. When GOOD baseball is being played, it’s fun to watch winning or not. I hope that our team and FO really considers this fact over this off-season. I will say that I’m looking forward to seeing Liam pitch again.

Yeah, this game was a perfect summation of this entire 5 game roadtrip: actual opportunities to do something but pissed it away for another loss – 5th loss in a row – not a single win on this roadtrip. What’s worse is that I should have been wearing that green shirt that Kbro designed for me… 12 MEN LEFT ON BASE!!!!! We had opportunities! The Royals actually walked 9 batters today. They even loaded the bases with walks twice – 7th and 9th innings and if we had hit something in, this would have been a different story! But no.. same story as it has been. And we once again had as many errors as runs..

The good news from today’s game is that Ben Revere stole three bases. He’s learning to read pitchers pretty well and taking advantage of good opportunities.  Good for him. He needs one more to match Luis Rivas’ rookie record so I would love to see him make a go of doing something that he can hold up as a success out of this miserable season.

Oh yeah.. and it’s hilarious to hear TK call Dick “Richard”…
