Video: Mauer on first base, what he likes least about being a dad


In case you missed it, WCCO-TV's Mark Rosen sat down with Twins catcher first baseman Joe Mauer for a one-on-one interview about the scare that led to the decision to remove himself from catching duties with the Twins.

He moves to first base on a full-time basis starting next season. The interview isn't all serious business as Mauer unveils his least favorite thing about parenting twin baby girls.

FOX Sports North's Brian Hall put together a list of possible full-time catchers the Twins could replace Mauer with. Ryan Doumit and Josmil Pinto head the list the five candidates.

And happy birthday to Rosen. KFAN-FM 100.3 had a good time celebrating with Rosen this morning.
