Tuesday Twins: Joe Mauer gave his MVP award to his parents

Because of course he did. Plus, an update on Ervin Santana, good defense, and Louie Anderson.

Yo, here da links:

  • Joe Mauer doesn’t display any of his numerous awards in his house... because he gave them to his parents. “My parents have the MVP trophy (from 2009) and a couple other things,” he told La Velle E. Neal III.
  • The Sporting News wrote about the one funny trick the Twins did to make them a playoff contenders (and it didn’t involved pills or powders... I think?)
  • Ervin Santana wasn’t expected to be back from his finger surgery until at least May but Twins Daily thinks it might already time to worry about it. The particular worry, I guess, is because Santana was maybe going back to New York City for a follow up visit with the surgeon who operated on him, but will see a doctor in the Twin Cities instead. It sounds more like a routine follow-up to me.
  • Minnesotan comedian Louie Anderson can’t decide if he wants to wear a Twins jersey or a Timberwolves jersey to his latest book signing.
