Best road trip ever!
Okay, maybe not technically but it sure feels like it. Over the past 7 days on the road, the Twins have outscored their opponents 60-16! The highest point of the trip was on Monday, when the Twins all padded their stats by beating the Royals 19-1! That score deficit apparently tied the Royals’ worst loss ever—but one poster on the Kansas City Star website made a pretty strong argument as to why it was actually the worst Royals’ loss ever.
Which is why I like the Royals, and their fans. They really love baseball. They also have blog headlines like this:
“Avoiding The Shutout: Royals Lose 19-1 To Twins”
“Game 99 Open Thread - Twins at Royals: I guess it really can't get much worse on the field tonight compared to last night's game.”
“Royals Make It Interesting, Lose Nevertheless: A 6-4 loss is like a win, right?”
See? Finding the positives! No temper-tantrums!
So kudos to Royals Fans!
Some other things worth noting:
- The Twins have had the second highest T.V. ratings out of all MLB teams so far this year.
- Despite also being Canadian, it looks like Morneau isn’t going to be the next Corey Koskie. He saw a concussion specialist last week who said he is making progress and by the end of the week he was working out at Target Field.
- Great News: Delmon Young shows no signs of ending the “Proving Jim Souhan is an Idiot Campaign of 2010” anytime soon.
- Superstar Twins blogger Nick Nelson hypothesized in a blog post last week that Joe Mauer's performance has suffered this year because he's been playing through several nagging injuries. Others have been saying the same thing. Turns out, they were spot on.
