    Carol Gardenhire had a point though about getting more paid paternity leave for twins (especially when you are the icon of the Twins).

    But since Joe doesn't really need the money, it would be a cool gesture if the Twins took what they would have paid him for the next 2 or 3 days and gave it to a charity that benefits kids. Its not like his replacement is getting big bucks.

    Long range planning... New Fathers just don't get the importance of that. The Twins will probably have to go to cosmetology school now.

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

    Serious about winning? You've seen the lineup, right?

    Trade deadline is 5 days away. I hope the problem is solved by then. Also, Mauer, Parm, and Colabello should be sharing first base by that time.
