Forget the dingers, where are the doubles? That's my bigger concern.
Same here. Thankfully, Joe is striking out less in recent days so in time, maybe the doubles will return as well.

I don't suppose this fits here but I'm aggravated by the inability of certain hitters (Mauer and Kubel mainly) for address defensive shifts. As a result they often hit balls hard, but right at fielders. Can't they adjust? Do they even try to adjust? Kubel could certainly, in the correct game-situation, lay down a bunt. A bunt is a single, damn it. And Mauer seems incapable of beating the shift by altering his approach at all. There are gaps out there just waiting to be pounded. Last night he hit two "doubles" down the left field line that were caught.
