Loyalty means a lot in the Twins’ organization, more than it does in most. It’s why their front-office turnover is so minimal, why Ron Gardenhire remains the manager after three straight dreadful seasons, why patience with this group – which, at 9-9, is hanging around in the American League Central – remains palpable as Twins fans wait for the arrival of uberprospects Byron Buxton and Miguel Sano.
Mauer and Perkins appreciate it, too, and as such they’ve pledged themselves to the Twins now and going forward. They couldn’t have imagined it way back when they were roommates during the Minnesota Lions High School All-Star Baseball Tournament, playing together for the Metro East team. Someone took a picture of the two together. Perkins looks like a tiny version of himself. Mauer might be a vampire. He hasn’t aged a day.
They’ve grown together, improved together and find themselves Twins together, chances are, forever. Better than they could’ve imagined back then. Exactly as they hope now.

Want to say something “in your face?!” choose Impact and piss everyone off. Impact is loud, crude, and overused. It’s like those polite Lutherans in Minnesota won’t say it to your face, so they write it in the church newsletter in Impact. (via American League logos infused with putrid fonts - Bless You Boys)
