Way to go Rosario! Remind me, why is Kepler leading off instead of hitting 7th or so?


Probably because coming into 2019 he had the best BB rate and obp of anyone on the roster other than Nelson Cruz.

So... Gibby's looking pretty good so far!

Check out my work at Purple Pain, a Vikings forum:

He generally leads off against righties.

He has an .849 OPS against RHP.

Are you sure?

Kepler's career OBP is .312, and .304 this season.

Is it just me or have there been an inordinate number of pop flies lately?

Just got a pedicure. I tried for a blue like the twins, but not sure I nailed it. :)

I'd post a picture, but no idea how....
