    It is Joe Mauer -- team prankster and wild and crazy guy. Is there even any doubt that he is just having fun with us?

    Well, if it was because he was following his daddy's occupation, it would have gone with his previous nickname (which seems to have dimmed somewhat).

    I don't know. He didn't take a good route on that ball. Got turned around and was lucky to catch it at all. We get that a lot around here. Won't name any names. You know who you are.
