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

Mauer's history has been exceedingly long recoveries from his various injuries. Although all catchers play nicked up, Mauer's threshold for playing with injuries seems lower than most.

 

Probably the harshest thing I can speculate is that Mauer seems to regard his productivity and image above contribution to a losing team.

Maybe Ruesse is right and he needs to prep more in the offseason and get stronger.

Pino-zie is pitching his tail off.

 

Mods: How do I change the "Senior Member" heading? I've tried everything I could think of. I'll try putting in art later.

Unless you are one of the people for whom this doesn't work.  

 

Apparently SB sees different pages when he clicks in to "My Settings" than I do.  

If you had trouble getting into certain pages yesterday, you may have trouble with this, too.  If so, contact Brock when he isn't quite so busy.

That was funny how emphatically the third base coach was on that play!

Dozier is really fighting it right now.

 

 

I wonder if participation in the HR Derby had anything to do with this.

Upsetness because of Pino's non-pitching mistakes. He should have covered first and he should have pitched around Abreu. Plus Parm may have gotten his toe on the bag before Eaton.
