Finally, some good Twins news: Mauer finalist for Gold Glove

It's not great news, necessarily, but we'll take it: Joe Mauer is one of three finalists for the Rawlings Gold Glove award, given to the best fielding player at his position, it was announced Friday.

Fox Sports North notes it would be Mauer's fourth in his career, and he's going up against Baltimore's Matt Wieters and Salvador Perez of Kansas City.

1500 ESPN drops the bummer that the Twins only have one gold glove nominee, even thought second baseman Brian Dozier might have had a shot.

The Orioles have six finalists. The Royals - and this is painful - have five.

Mauer won it in 2008, '09 and 2010. How could anyone deny a guy who can do this?

And a deconstruction of what it takes to do that:
