[QUOTE=Aquatta;159717]Joe Mauer is a god, now he is drool worthy. However I cant decide which Twin I like more, Mauer or Morneau. I love blonde, pale guys with blue eyes and he is Canadian! I go back and forth but I think Morneau edges out Mauer. They are both so dreamy.[/QUOTE] You can have them. I'll take the US bobsled team. Except the driver. I'll be the driver. All night. I mean...ahem. Go Tigs!

I'm actually about 1 mile away from Scottsdale Stadium where the Giants hold Spring Training for the Cactus League. Next year, the DBacks & Rockies will be up in Scottsdale as well. ... bet you wish you could see Cactus League or Grapefruit League games every day.
Our break-up might hve been bad but it feels great to have you back again. Love you forever #5!

Joe Nathan will be out for a while it looks like and Webb is nowhere near 100% because his head not really in the game yet.

[URL="http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/spring2010/news/story?id=5015108"]Nathan is out for the season.[/URL] This is devastating news to Twins fans everywhere... The consensus is that they go from contender to pretender with this blow as you bump everyone up in the pen and it costs you 5-10 wins down the stretch. Hmm, I wonder if the Twins start off dragging out of the gate, maybe Mauer might start to consider another team to sign with next year. I know he loves his hometown, but players of his caliber know that to become an immortal of the sport you need a ring and I personally don't think that the Twins organization is a place where he can get one in the next 8-10 years, being they'll always have the Red Sox and Yankees in their path to the series (with both of those organizations in a high priced "nuclear" arms race.)

8 years? Dang! Yea, I don't see him getting a ring with the Twins any time soon. It's a shame, would have loved to have him on the Sox.
An extension that big means he'll never get traded unless some team is willing to part with a lot in the back end of the contract around year 6 or so. It will be even worse for them if he goes down with an injury for a season in the next 3 years.

That can be a serious amount of ouch too.
