The Best of Joe Mauer Tweets

Earlier this week, Danny Valencia made a comment on Twitter that he was trying to get Joe Mauer to start using it. Clever Twins fans took to their keyboards and crafted tweets that they think Mauer would write using the hashtag Joe Mauer Tweets. Check out some of the best Joe Mauer Tweets after the jump.

From Seth Kaplan (@Seth_Kaplan)
“I really don’t use Head & Shoulders, eat Kemps ice cream or like Anytime Fitness. Sorry, I’m just an honest guy.”

From Randball (@RandBall)
“I was asked to name my favorite soup, but there are so many. I worry about leaving one out. Wouldn’t be fair to that soup.”

“I went to the Black Hills last summer during the All-Star Break, pretty neat you guys.”

From Humann (@Humann_Touch)

    I think we know now why he isn’t on Twitter. To many jealous shallow people out there. Give him a break! He can’t help it he’s better than you.

    I think it was all in good fun. Most of the Mauer Tweets were kind-hearted; there were a few going around that got a little malicious about Mauer’s 2011 performance, but the ones reprinted above are all friendly in nature. In fact, the ones about the kittens and the geese were downright complimentary.

    Actually, I think the “aw, shucks” shyness and humble demeanor the tweets were poking fun at is one of the biggest reasons Twins fans like Joe Mauer. His attitude is a nice contrast to some other Minnesota pro athletes (who shall remain nameless) who have been arrested and caused trouble in recent years.

    The Head and Shoulders one was my favorite.
