A Horde of Hardware

Yup, those are all for our Joe Mauer.

So far this off-season, he's received his third batting title, his second Gold Glove, and his first MVP.

I can't even get my head wrapped around how amazing all this is. It really is a ton of fun to have such a special player on my favorite team.

Now...let's hope the off-season fun continues for him with the Twins offering him a dazzle of dollars and a yoke of years in a satisfactory contract extension.

Oh, and if you haven't seen his press conference, check it out. I love how smiley he was -- he really was happy. I also love how he said he was speechless, and then rambled on and on. And, of course, Sid made him artfully dance around the "are you a Twin for the future" question.

And, by the way, this post would not be possible without and the "collective noun" entry of Wikipedia.

Aw...what a cute picture. The Twins brass HAS to sign him. How often does a player like this come along? How often does he play for your favorite team? Almost never!

Thanks for teaching me some new words today. :-)

Joe has my vote for the Hitter of the Yeah Goblet, too. :)


Not this time, Longoria.
