Game Thread 9/28: Kansas City Royals @ Minnesota Twins

This could be Bradke's last go as a Twins if things don't go well.  I pray they do.  Kansas City:  59-99.  Minnesota:  94-64.

Not that VORP is everything...and they are all just kids...but five players with negatives to round out the order is never a good thing.  When your four and six hitters would be better suited to be six and eight hitters...well...you must be the Royals.

This is Brad Radke's last regular season game as a Twin, and I'm out the door to be sure I'm there for it.  I'll catch you all later.
