Not a bad analysis, but I think when you say "With all due respect" before disrespecting a guy, you are using the first phrase improperly.

 

Joe Mauer is a living legend. He signed here for much less than he would have collected in New York or LA. That showed loyalty. He has played through injuries and concussions and has shown resilience, guts and desire. He is not what he once was, but he is still Joe Mauer. He will quit when he says. To his critics, this is an annoyance. The rest of us are grateful for every day we get to watch him play. 

I don't think it's disrespectful to suggest the team should have a say in Mauer's next contract.

To answer the question about the Futures game ... no MLB team is allowed more than two representatives. Some teams only have one prospect going. If you do the math, 25 on each team is 50 players. With 30 MLB teams and each team needs at least one representative, the rule is no team can have more than 2.

Thanks
