Royce Lewis demotion again shows Twins aren’t about the fans

What are the Twins doing with Royce Lewis? That’s the question fans are asking after waking up Wednesday to news that the team’s top prospect was sent down to Triple-A St. Paul despite making a brilliant first impression in the big leagues.

If it wasn’t obvious before, it should be crystal clear now that the Twins don’t care what fans want and they sure as heck aren’t going to base any decisions on the desires of fans who pack scatter about Target Field to watch the first-place ball club. 

Lewis doubled and homered Tuesday night to continue a torrid stretch where five of his last nine hits have been doubles or homers. In 11 games since debuting May 6, he hit .308/.325/.564 with two homers – including a grand slam – four doubles and five RBIs while hitting safely in nine of 11 games.
