All-Star Game hats.
Some look great. (Twins, Blue Jays, Pirates, Mariners, Orioles)
Others look terrible. (Diamondbacks, Braves, Marlins, Reds, Rangers)

Modeled after the Twins’ 70s-era batting helmets.

Also…who starts an alphabetical list from the bottom right?

Just a reminder that the Twins won the Mariano Rivera Retirement Gift Awards this year.
The rocking chair made of broken bats. Nothing better.
And yes, we all want one.

It’s always the last team you would expect.

The Space Race was so endearing.

Twins’ star catcher Joe Mauer and his wife Maddie are expecting twins. 

And as you will read in the article:

1) There is already a Twin with twins

2) The Star-Tribune has already made the “Minnie” and “Paul” name joke, so you don’t have to.

The last time Andy Pettite lost to the Twins…

Joe Mauer was a senior in high school, six weeks away from being drafted number one overall by the Twins.

Pettite lost 2-1 to the then 5-0 Brad Radke. (April 30, 2001)

Scott Diamond of the Twins Suspended 6 Games

and fined an undisclosed amount for throwing at Josh Hamilton, “near the head area.” The throw was in the 3rd inning of yesterday’s game and apparently in retribution for Roy Oswalt’s plunking of Joe Mauer.

Diamond is appealing.

As of now there is no discipline for Roy Oswalt.
