Wrapped Up, With a Bow

When you've got the best backup catcher in baseball, you don't let him go.

Minnesota Twins catcher Mike Redmond has accepted a two-year contract extension with a club option for 2009.

The 35-year-old Redmond has been backing up Joe Mauer, who leads the majors with a .375 average. Redmond is batting .333 with eight doubles and 14 R-B-I's in 29 games this season.He's played errorless ball while throwing out 38 percent of his potential base-stealers since joining the Twins before last season.
