With Hendriks going tonight, maybe, just maybe, a Twin will connect for Franchise Home Run #10,000.Before it happens, let's get some predictions who does it and the game situation.Chi-Town quoted a forecast of a rather brisk wind blowing in from right, so I'm going with a RH hitter (or Mauer oppo).

 

I'm going to say Kennys Vargas in the sixth inning vs. a LH Royal reliever, two on and two out.

This would be a good point to make in the game thread.

Prediction:The Twins will hit that elusive 10,000th bomb at OPCY.Kind of a bandbox and even though they aren't hitting great, somebody will get ahold of one.

The mark of a team with scant power: predicting we will hit at least one home run in an upcoming series. :)

I assume at least one of Vargas, Arcia, Plouffe, or Dozier will get a homer in the Orioles' series - it would be hard for them not to hit at least one.... Right?

And the 10,000th homer will be hit by... Joe Mauer.

 

(Sorry, not trying to be a troll).

You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.
