Quote of the Day

Today our Minor League Field Coordinator, Joel Lepel came into our clubhouse and asked our pitching coach, Ivan Arteaga who was throwing bullpens today, Ivan told him there are no bullpens today unless A.J Achter wanted to throw one. This was the conversation that took place 5 seconds later.

"Hey A.J, do you want to throw a bullpen today?"
"Not really, I would rather throw it tomorrow"
"How about you throw one to Joe Mauer today?"
"Okay, that sounds good"

I found this funny because of how quickly A.J changed his mind about throwing a bullpen once he found out that Joe Mauer was going to be his catcher. Honestly, I would throw a bullpen in the middle of a game I was pitching in if I knew Joe Mauer was going to be the one catching me.
