If I Had A Theme Song, I Would Probably Go Yard Too!

I didn’t see the game last tonight (had to work…boo), but it featured the return of Joe Mauer, who promptly deposited a Sidney Ponson offering into the left field seats.  Welcome back, Joe!  Despite a shaky outing from Kevin Slowey, the Twins still held on for the 7-5 victory and dropped Sir Sidney to 0-4 on the season (the team who loses to him will be a pretty embarrassed bunch).

Oh, about the theme song…does anyone find it strange that such a white-bread, boring guy like Mauer (Monotone: “The good-good-goodness of Land O’Lakes milk”) would have a hard-core rap theme song?!

Preview (12-11, T-2nd, 0,5 GB CWS): Brian Bannister (2-0, 0.69) vs. Glen Perkins (1-2, 2.48). The bats won’t be able to swing away with ease tonight, but I look for MN’s dominance over KC to continue.

Just another example of why the guy is THE premier catcher in MLB.

I’m not even a Twins fan, but this guy will be a Top 5 backstop all-time by the end of his career.

I wrote a few weeks ago about how he’s still underappreciated. The guy can get two hits any day of the week. He hasn’t seen major league pitching since last October and he is in mid-season form. Incredible.
