Kudos to Yahoo! again. Just last week in their featured module on the home page, they highlighted Nick Blackburn’s “little league” play that cost the Twins the game against the Brewers. Today, it’s a Jeff Passan article about Minnesota’s golden boy Joe Mauer and his, erm, rapping ability.
It’s a nice article too, all about Joe Mauer’s other talents besides his potential opportunity to complete a Major League season with an average above the .400 mark. My favorite line is from Denard Span on the catcher’s purported abilities as a rapper:
“Looking at him right now, I’m guessing it’s a cross between Vanilla Ice and Cypress Hill.”
That’s just priceless!
