Twins would welcome a little extra fake noise in ballpark

Twins manager Rocco Baldelli on Monday said he wouldn’t mind the artificial background noise every team is using turned up in an attempt to avoid potential conflicts.

This comes after most Royals players stayed in the dugout for a several moments at the end of Sunday’s 4-2 loss, as Twins reliever Sergio Romo kept chirping at them after he struck out the side.

Indications are that the issue began earlier in the inning when a close pitch was called a strike on Nicky Lopez, leading to an eruption from the Kansas City dugout that got Romo’s attention.

Baldelli didn’t expect any carryover from Sunday’s game — although a number of Twins players on Monday wore green T-shirts during warmups with “SERGIO” across the front.

It looks like a perfect spot to write in lefthander Rich Hill, who has sidelined since July 29 by a slight shoulder problem.
