The Minnesota Twins closed out a two-series homestand by winning three of four games against division rival Kansas City, and they did so with contributions from all across the roster. Dan defends the performance of Jhoan Duran, who picked up saves in each of the Twins' three victories, while David highlights the important contributions of sausage kingpin Ryan Jeffers in Game 4. They discuss the Royce Lewis question -- whose place he will take on the roster -- and they look ahead as to whether Pablo Lopez will improve and whether Joe Ryan can maintain his excellence throughout a full season. Dan has complaints about Joe Ryan's snacking habits, while David is still trying to make sense of Rocco Baldelli's usage of his bullpen arms. They look around at various developments across Major League Baseball, and then they make their picks for the next series against the Houston Astros. Thanks for listening, and go Twins!
