Game CX Open Thread - The Twins of Minnesota Versus the Royals of Kansas City

110 games in and they still sort of mean something. This must be what it feels like for an 89-year-old man to get a tingle in his nether-regions for the first time in decades.

I have no idea why yesterday's game isn't in the standings here. I'm going to leave it up there anyway because go for it. It looks like Twins fans are starting to get a sense of what it's like to have been a Royals fan for all these years.

Will Albers be able to channel the Ghost of Brad Radke (h/t to Gopherballs)? Will Shields be able to channel the Ghost of James Shields? Only [game] time will tell.
