RE:  Mauer

 

I didn't want to post a new thread on this because I really don't want to get into yet another lengthy Mauer discussion but did anyone else read Reusse in the Strib about the need for management to call out Mauer?

It was kind of an odd piece but then the whole situation with Mauer is odd.  There's nothing to be done but wait for that oblique to finish healing.  On the other hand, sometimes I feel like he needs a size 16 planted firmly on his b*tt.

Consider this an anti-like.

Does the fact that I have a warning point make me a bad boy?


Yes

But nobody else knows you have a warning point.

 

That's apparently only visible to the poster.  :)  (Well, since the mods are all-seeing, maybe they can see it).

Yes ... the mods can see the warning points.  We, um, 'over tested' that area on the test site before launch.

Mauer has the sweetest swing on the planet. And... He is now pictured in the encyclopedia under injury prone.

So who feels worse, the fan reading the names in today's line up or the manager who actually has to write them down to give to the umpire?

In March of 2015... Someone is going to write... "If the Twins get a decent 75 games out of Joe Mauer. The Twins could finish 4th in the AL Central".

I thought we were going to get a complete history of Roy's batting glove usage, in several different versions.

Who is just happy to be penciled into the lineup at first base.

If the first person on the phone can't answer your question, it's a bureaucracy.
