Joe Mauer need help badly

Postby mrider » Sat May 07, 2005 6:55 pm

Personally this guy pardon my language pisses me off. He plays awesome one game 4 for 5, 1 HR, 3 RBI, and 1 SB. Then the next day he sits whats up with this. If they dont want him to catch every day why dont they DH could someone answer my question.

I could be totally wrong here but his knee injury is preventing him from playing everyday. He had a busy day yesterday getting 4 hits and catching 9 innings.

I think the plan is to give him more rest in the beginning of the season to build him up so that they can give him about a day off per week which is normal for most catchers that only catch. He is a very significant investment/asset for the Twinkies and they are doing the right thing at the moment. They need him more at the end of the season for obvious reasons.

On the other hand, he is really playing well this season. He is entrenched at the 3 spot and with Morneau's return, he will have great numbers if he doesn't miss too much time. I bumped his projections up to .315, 22 HR, 86 RBI. Should be a top 3 catcher. ;-D

He gets alot of days off. Has to be his knee. Maybe it swells or something.

He can't play everyday. A catcher with a gimpy knee in his early 20s? Yikes. What were the Twins thinking when they took him over Mark Prior? Can you imagine Johan+Prior?

A lefty was on the mound too. As was CC last time he sat. They need to give him days off for obvious reasons so what better days then against decent lefties. Don't worry it will get better soon as they gain more confidence in his knee. Being a Twins fan I'm glad they are taking it easy on him as these games don't mean nearly as much as the september one vs the White Sox.

Hmm a pitcher in his early 20's with a few injuries already?

I don't think we should question any moves Terry Ryan has made in the last half decade. Especially a catcher that looks liek a 320+ hitter with solid power adn elite defense already!

PLus it's not like Prior + Wood + Maddux + Zam have equaled much

They've gotten farther than the Twins have in the past 10 years. Seriously, you can think taking Mauer over Prior was a good move, but I would say nearly everyone would want Prior. His injuries are behind him I think. His injury last year was due to overuse, pitching too many 130 pitch games. This year hes dominating and hovering around that 100-105 mark. Much better. But he should work out more, because it seems he gets problems every beginning of the year, probably from not staying in as good throwing shape as he should.
