I love me some Kershaw and Verlander too, but even the great innings eating starting pitchers get help from his catcher calling the game, the defense behind him, and the offense that scored enough for the team to win. Even the best pitchers can't win a game on their own.


Well, maybe Rick Wise...

Calm down, Thrylos. This article only says that Mauer has "admirably carved out a place in franchise lore." No mention here of Hall of Fame.

Doesn't matter.The Mauer for the HOF campaign started several years ago and it has been widely discussed here.When a thread about Mauer's career acheivements gets pasted up on this board that is an open invitation for a comment such as the one Thrylos made.
