Who sucks on the road?

The Twins begin a stretch of 22 of their next 31 games on the road. This could be a rocky month for our favorite squad, as they look to build on their league-worst 5 - 14 road record.

The Alright Hamilton Monkey did a little digging to figure out why the Twins are so terrible on the road. Here is his list of players who are markedly worse away from the dome.

Note: the Alright Hamilton Monkey has never heard of "small sample size" or "more relative statistics"

Joe Crede

Away: .212 with 3 bombs

Michael Cuddyer
home: .311 with 5 bombs
Away: .247 with 3 bombs
