You have probably already heard but just in case you have been under a rock called “working for a living” or some other extremely valid reason to be away from the social media round the clock news cycle, Joe Mauer & his wife, Maddie, welcomed their twin little girls into the world about 3:30 this morning. Their names are Maren Virginia and Emily Teresa and from the sounds of things, all is well and good.
Joe has been place on the Paternity list and is scheduled to be back with the team at the latest by Saturday. Drew Butera has been called up to sit on the bench in his absence…
Day games are still complicated even when they are on the west coast so no, I doubt I will get to follow along but I’m sure hoping for a sweep! That would be a great morale boost for the team and fans alike before we head off to tackle the more intimidating (to me) Mariners. I hope the boys give TDOW another great game!

So when is an infield fly not an “infield fly”?
Ah well… if you’re only going to get 2 hits off of Weaver, you’re probably not going to win the game. Sounds like Mike Pelfrey had a nice outing, though, so that’s encouraging. – JC
