It’s hokey, but I don’t think the fact that Donaldson gifted everyone on the team their own robes, and they have turned it into a “thing” after homers should be underestimated. Every year it seems like teams come up with some sort of stupid thing like Aaron Judge interviewing players in the dugout, or players having secret signs when they get hits, etc. I don’t know how to quantify it, but I honestly think those little team-building things are significant, and I love to see it for the Twins. I hope they really, really care about getting to wear the robe. Bring on the bombas this weekend and next week. Who cares if this is a weird year - there is still going to be a champion crowned, and the Twins have a stacked team. Go win it!

I hope they do robes beyond just home runs, to maximize their hokey impact.

 

Is there a chance MLB could step in, and say that sharing robes violates some COVID-19 protocol? If so, could that make the power of the robes even stronger?

 

Hopefully the robes succeed where "Bombas" and dance parties have previously failed!

Good point. If MLB banned the robe-sharing, that would definitely increase the “us against the world” mentality.

If they want to complete the impact ... they need to get a robe for the Squirrel ;)

The MLB Game of the Week guys talked about the Squirrel late in the game tonight.  They were suggesting that he may have died over the cold MInnesota winter.
