Know Thine Bourgeoisie: Royals Review

If the Twins can beat Sparkman, they’ll get equipped with the Spark Shock and finally be able to beat Magnet Man. I hope you enjoyed that reference to a 29 year old game, because I’m probably going to repeat it in the recap.

Sparkman is 0-3 against the Twins in his career, and as a player currently playing for the Royals, you might have guessed he’s not really that great against anybody.

You probably know that Jake Odorizzi is good so I’m not going to talk about him. Enjoy baseball.
