Just put together a post about the debate over collisions at the plate: http://twinsdaily.com/entry.php?130-...lock-the-plate
Make sure to check it out and then I was wondering where everyone stood on the issue.
Should Mauer be standing in the way at home plate? The Twins have a lot of money invested in him for the greater part of the next decade. It still seems there are precautions a catcher can take when preparing for a hit.
