Game 104 Open Thread - Kansas City (52-51) at Minnesota (45-58)

New, comments

Mayhem, madness and mediocrity collide in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Half of the Major League baseball is over .500 and the Royals will attempt to stay there by extending their winning streak to eight games tonight. A win would make July the second straight month that Kansas City has fashioned a five over .500 month. Sadly a twelve under May performance cannot be erased from the ledger and likely will haunt us for decades.

The couldn't-care-less White Sox are playing at Cleveland. While the Tigers did what they apparently are just going to keep doing this afternoon: win. It is apparently impossible to make up ground in the American League Central these days.

On the bright side, Mike Moustakas has outhomered Miguel Cabrera this week. I guarantee if that trend continues for the next eight weeks, the Royals will make up ground. I will not, however, guarantee you that trend continues.
