5-5 last night 4-5 the night before. This kid DESERVES it! He may not get it because of our "small market" team, but that doesn't change the fact that he should be in the all star game and he should be the MVP!
He deserves to be in the All-Star game, that's for sure.

But he's not even the MVP of his own team, IMHO. The Twins didn't start winning until the pitching came around - and that happened when Francisco Liriano was allowed to start. And when Justin Morneau started hitting dingers and collecting RBIs in bunches.

Joe Mauer - 5-5 last night with 1 run scored and 1 RBI.

Nick Punto - 2-5 last night with 2 runs scored and 2 RBIs.

Who was more valuable to last night's victory?

(And I'm a huge Mauer fan - I bought his t-shirt when I was at the Dome a couple weeks back - my ONLY Twinkies shirt)
