Know Thine Enemy: Royals Review


Has anything this season been as depressing as knowing that James Beresford has started multiple games at first base and Logan Schafer was a fifth-place hitter last night? Tonight the Twins field an actual major league lineup - as in Kennys Vargas is starting at 1B, Max Kepler is tonight's #5 hitter and everyone (except maybe Robbie Grossman, but he does hit LHP well) appears that they slot into a reasonable spot in the batting order.


Ervin Santana takes the mound so the pitching should be solid, too. Hey! The Twins might actually win this one.
