Down on the Farm -- Marvelous Mauer
Caught a couple of games at the Metrodome last week. The Twins played the Yankees. Sadly, the Yankees won both games, as well as the third game of the series.
Apparently Evil sometimes prevails over Good.
Yet, it was well worth the trip just to watch Joe Mauer ply his trade.
Twenty years ago, Twins fans fell hard for the puppy-dog enthusiasm of Kirby Puckett. Today, they are beginning to appreciate the feline grace and power of hometown hero Joe Mauer.
