Good morning Twins fans! Here are this week's links:

  • If you were wondering how Nick Punto is doing lately: Last night, LNP hit his second (!) home run of the year, celebrated it with Danny DeVito (who was wearing a Punto jersey), and got a curtain call at Dodgers stadium.

  • Howard Sinker recently opined as to why Nick Punto received so much backlash from Twins fans, but no one seemed to have a problem with Jamey Carroll.
  • RandBall has an update on what Tsuyoshi Nishioka is doing in Japan. I actually watched the Hanshin Tigers vs. Hiroshima Toyo Carp game this morning (don't judge me) and can confirm Nishioka did not play today.
  • Before Jamey Carroll was traded to the Royals last Sunday, Twins Daily's Parker Hageman talked with the utility man about preparing defensively for a game. Let's just say, he's definitely a professional baseball player.
