If you are a baseball fan in general and/or a Twins fan specifically, these four days with nothing but All-Star festivities might leave you a little bored (even if the local team is amply represented in Miami this year).

But if you think you don't have anything to do, imagine being a Twins relief pitcher these next four days.

Aside from Brandon Kintzler, who has a good excuse for not getting much time off since he was a late All-Star addition, the rest of the oft-used Twins bullpen members will have four amazing days in which they are guaranteed not to have to pitch.

They might not know what to do with themselves and may instinctively wait by their phones anytime between 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. on weeknights just in case they are needed.

And when the Twins' next series starts Friday in Houston, dare we say each and every one of them will be rested?
