Note from La Velle:
First of all, how about that photo —————>
Quick primer. On May 10, Justin Morneau and Joe Mauer hit back-to-back homers for the second straight game. In my game story , I called the Mauer-Morneau friendship, “one of baseball’s best bromances.” Little did I know that Morneau’s wife, Krista, has used that term to describe them for several months now. The rest of the team knew it, and let the M&M men have it the next day. Morneau vowed to get back at me, somehow. That’s why you’ll see the word bromance in his post.
Without further delay, here’s the former MVP. Have a good weekend. Joe C. is with the club on the west coast swing. If you see me at Grand Old Day on Sunday, what happens there, stays there. I’ll jump back in Monday with draft stuff.
JUSTIN MORNEAU. FROM THE BATTERS BOX
I’m not really sure what a blog is supposed to be as I have never read one. I don’t have facebook or myspace or any of those things where people can track your every move. With that said this is my attempt at blogging.
The reason that I am writing this is because I lost a bet to La Velle when my Canucks lost to his Blackhawks about a month ago. It was a huge disappointment for me as I thought they had a great bro-mance going there in Vancouver! Apparently it wasn’t as strong of a bro-mance that they had in Chicago.
Our season is two months old now and we need to start playing better on the road. We are not really sure what the difference is on the road, but hopefully we will figure it out soon.
I believe we are a playoff caliber team and should be in the fight for the division the rest of the way. We go on a 10-day road trip soon (starting tonight in Seattle) and I am looking forward to most of it as we go to Seattle and I get to see a lot of family and friends there. After that is Oakland.
The last part of the trip is the part I am most looking forward to. We get to play in Wrigley field against the Cubs. It will be my first time there and I’m looking forward to it.
Time to go to work.
