Playing baseball with joy and verve and poetry

I can't get this quote from Bull Durham out of my head when thinking about the Twins recent run. It's the voiceover by Annie Savoy when the Durham Bulls start playing well:

For one extraordinary June and July, the Durham Bulls, for whatever perverse reason, began playing baseball with joy and verve and poetry. The two sides of my own brain were all jumbled up and cross-wired...while one side was being neglected,  the other was in paradise watching our Bulls play like Big Leaguers...We swept a four game series with Kingston, back to back doubleheaders with Winston-Salem, and kicked the holy shit out of Greensboro in a three game series...

So my question is, did Michael Cuddyer lead the team in running the bases with the sprinklers on in Detroit after the June 1st loss? That's a serious question. #Itshappening
