I may not be the biggest party animal in Twinsville, but there are plenty of reasons for Twins fans to be celebrating tonight!
First and foremost, there was the return of Justin Morneau to the playing field. Check out the video of both of Doc’s plate appearances this morning in the ‘B’ game with the Pirates!
This got everyone pretty excited!
It doesn’t take much to get the Twinsville Tweeters’ fingers going (much to Gardy’s chagrin, at times… does anyone else find it just hilarious that he hasn’t quite come to grips with the fact that things he tells reporters no longer take 18 hours before those words become public?) and we certainly had reactions flying across the airwaves today. Here’s just a sampling of today’s revelry:
Justin was all smiles after the game… at least I THINK there’s a smile under that fu manchu somewhere. Check out the pic link:
Naturally, Carl “the ‘stache” Pavano, himself, was not easily impressed:
Joe Mauer was duly impressed… kind of:
@JoeCStrib Huge crowd was watching Mauer take swings in batting cage. I told him Morneau hit a 3-run 2B. “Did he?” Mauer said. “That’s pretty good.”
OK, so I’m not really sure this falls under the category of “revelry”… but it’s interesting anyway:
Of course, Gardy made sure everyone knew Doc wasn’t the only guy making his spring debut today:
