Because life can sometimes meander into perfection, the most popular Minnesota Twins player and his lovely wife are now expecting actual twins. 

Pioneer Press brings us a story that rides nicely on the edge of redundancy by announcing Joe and Maddie Mauer are expecting a couple bundles of joy. 

"Obviously, we're both really excited and couldn't be happier," Mauer said Wednesday. "Everything so far is good."

The 29-year-old said it was still too early to know if the twins will be boys or girls, so for the moment we will savor the wonder that a man who has played for the Twins for nine seasons is bringing actual twins into the world. 

This is essentially like Mike Trout having an angel, Miguel Cabrera having a tiger or Giancarlo Stanton having a losing ballclub. 

Mauer is coming off a solid season wherein he batted .319 with a WAR of 4.1 according to ESPN, a marked improvement from his shortened 2011 season.

It's onwards and upwards for a team that won only 66 games last year and finished last in the AL Central Division. 

As for Maddie, Joe met his future wife while both attended Cretin-Derham Hall High School in St. Paul. However, the two were not high school sweethearts, but only began a romantic relationship when they later reconnected, via CBS.  

The two were engaged in December of 2011 and married a year later in a ceremony at Nativity of Our Lord Catholic Church, which is located in, you guessed it, St. Paul, Minnesota. 

The theme here is the two like to keep things within Minnesota and confined to one of the Twin Cities. At risk of sounding superfluous, it's absolutely perfect the two are now expecting twins.
