In the Year of the Homer, the Minnesota Twins Rule with an Iron Fist
MLB baseball has suddenly morphed into the most expensive, highly skilled beer league ever assembled.
This group of mostly anonymous players reached the magical 300-homer threshold recently, which seems like an absurd number of dingers in a season because it is.
And someone named Willians Astudillo made it 301 later in the game.
Wrap your mind around this stat morsel:
That's pretty silly.
While the juicy baseball has become the source of much angst this season, as metaphored in this bunt double tonight ...
... it's not like the dead ball era ended last year.
In fact, the Twins broke a record that was set just last season by the New York Yankees, who launched 267 missiles.
And here's the game where it happened, which was also in Detroit, because of course.
The Tigers and Orioles should be disbanded.
Minnesota Twins are the 1st team ever to hit 300 homers in a season. In fact they are at 301 & counting. As one reporter said, MLB has become Major League Softball. Balls are definitely juiced.— Donald Huot (@3nohitters) September 27, 2019
Someone just needs to convince Rob Manfred.
