Kyle Gibson, master of getting no run support, hopes to maybe get some run support this time.

Don't have any dumb trivia for Royals Review: Royals Review

Welcome to Trivial Pursuit game-thread edition! Here are 5 maybe too hard questions to test your knowledge of things that don't matter at all to most people! Including me!

1: Who who the last hitter to hit for the cycle AGAINST the Twins. Bonus points for the year. Fun Fact: Paul Molitor did it in 91 as a brewer. (He's not the answer.)

2: In 2007 which Twins starter threw a one-hitter against the Royals? It was the only one-hitter of that year.

3: Which ex-Twin's name is an anagram of TOTAL MERCY? Or "Try Clam Toe" (Delicious clam toe, breakfast of champions.)

4: Which non-Giminez position-player has the most appearances all-time as a pitcher for the Twins?

5: Who was the only Twin to manage 5 hit games in both 1999 and 2000?

Answers will be revealed when you google them. I will compliment anyone who completes the quiz with a degree of niceness based upon your score.
