    The Minnesota "Twins," Florimon and Escobar, a utility infielder's delight.

    The offense is fine.
    There isn't enough defense on the planet to justify giving 500+ PA to a guy who can barely OPS .600.

    It's not like he was running full speed either, he was slowly drifting back.


    Awful.

    Looks like the faux triple has ignited the offense.

    Tagging home plate on a wild pitch should result in an out.

    Tigers' announcers still lamenting the "wind blown triple".

    Well said. This is shaping up to be a great day for Mauer. Let's hope that he plays in the nightcap.

    Delmon Young seems to play better when it's against the Twins. Revenge factor?

    Mauer is definitely picking up the pace in the BA race and I really am pulling for him to win it, but I do have some mixed emotions about the situation.

    In my lifetime I have never witnessed a Triple Crown take place. It would be excellent to see something rare and historical happen in this 2012 season.

    I am leaning towards a first time 4-time batting champion catcher (I say this knowing that their is a chance some might bust my balls for proclaiming Mauer a Catcher).

    I've never seen a triple crown either but if Mauer manages to win five batting titles, he's pretty much a lock for the Hall. Therefore, I'm cheering for Joe to win the title.

    Well, the Twins handed Miggy well the first game, lets see if Walters and his homer-prone pitching ways can stand up in the nightcap.

    Agreed, but 4 might do it.

    Four might do it but five would push him into elite territory.

    It probably depends on how long he stays a catcher

    I think it happens. I feel in my baseball bones that he has another blockbuster season left in his tank to go along with a handful of excellent seasons. .350+BA, 15-20HR's, 90+RBI's
