Tuesday Twins: Status update on Joe Mauer’s legs and other notes

Hey all! There’s not much news these days, but I still got the links: Stop me if you’ve heard this one before, but new reports say Joe Mauer has been spending the off-season trying to strengthen his legs. “I needed some time to rest,” Joe told Mike Berardino.
