Congrats on your wedding, Parker and may you and your bride enjoy a long and happy marriage (and blessings to her for sharing part of your honeymoon with the Twins so you could share it with us).

Somehow it still seems like there should be someone much taller in gear in that catcher's photo. While I think Mauer's full-time move to first is the right thing, it is going to take some getting used to!

Thanks JB! I think by posting this, I can write-off the entire cost of the wedding. ;-)

Yes, one of the most noticeable things was Mauer's absence. It definitely stood out.

On baseball: Thanks for posting this. Antony a couple days ago said something like "some people in the Twins' organization thought that Pinto checked in a few pounds too heavy". Just looking at this, and knowing what Pinto looks like for the last 3-4 STs, I can call major BS...
