My projection for Joe Mauer is: .318/.397/.496 with 40 doubles, 11 home runs and 84 RBI. Consider each of those numbers over/unders. What do you think? How do you think he will hit in 2012? Get your projections in here!

If he's the old Joe, then I'd take the over (albeit very slightly) on just about everything except RBIs. The question is his health. It's spring, so I'll be an optimist for now.

Yeah, I think Joe Mauer will lose the ability to hit and draw walks in the prime of his career. That's my prediction.

I'll say this with maybe a little higher BA, .400+ OBP, and a high of 90 RBI with a low of 70 depending on performance out of top of lineup.

I just took a bet with my buddy that Joe Mauer will hit more than 10.5 HR, reason I took that is I believe he is worth more taking less walks, trying to drive the ball more often. It seems as though he is healthy, he will play catcher less often, we have the ability to put Mauer at DH/1B. I think this will help, he is in his prime. .321/.400/.521 with 46 doubles, 13 HR. Go Mauer!!!

They still have a few more days to move the fences in. My prediction will be dependent on that.
