I do not normally do this. I normally save this kind of thing for the Friday Links, but this particular link cannot wait.
Jon Marthaler has produced what very well could be the Twins Article of the Year. Last night he chronicled the Twins and Royals game as a running diary. His writing is both enlightening and entertaining.
Here is my favorite snip:
7:43 - Luke Hughes floats a single between short and third. It must be disconcerting being on first base withDrew Butera up, knowing that your best-case scenario is to get to kick a second baseman in the leg on a takeout slide. Theirs not to question why; theirs but to do and die. Eight million Butera-wasted baserunners into the second-base breach.
7:44 - Butera ruins my Tennyson adaptation by striking out.
When you have finished reading his article, thank him.
