    Late last night news broke that Joe's Mauer's wife, Maddie, is pregnant with Twins. (Oops. I meant "twins." The capitalization has become a habit.

  13. For Better Or Worse: Joe Mauer

    You only have two choices: will he be better or worse in 2013....

    2012 Recap
    Given the clustermess that was 2011, most Twins fans would have been happy just to see Joe Mauer on the field last year. They did - kinda.
