Mauer cannot be considered to have a better eye than Bonds, Pujols, Abreu, Helton, Giambi, Manny(others?) and I'd even add Hafner, Youkilis and Frank Thomas (still has yet to prove he doesn't, imo). It will take more than less than half a season and decent previous years to take that title. Once pitchers really start staying away from him we'll have a critical piece of knowledge in truly knowing his eye. 34 BB, 27 K isn't amazing for a 5 HR guy taking 3.85 pitches per PA.
