    What other player has changed to fit their "role", though? It's not like Pujols or Cabrera came to camp one year and decided to be a slugger, because their team needed it more. Jeter/Suzuki/etc...

    And is it bad that I sort of enjoy the bad team, in terms of attendance and ticket demand? Pretty sweet picking up $2 tickets on the secondary market and finding a friendly usher with an empty...

    How about keep the Twins in Minneapolis, and move the Rays to St. Paul? (Actually, that would be pretty cool...)

    Can I add a reason to like Mauer? He chose baseball over football. (Yeah, baseball offered the more immediate payday, but he still made the choice.)

    Not only that, from ages 14-30 at least, he...

    Somewhat off topic (which might be good, since I don't particularly care for the topic anymore :) ):

    Is it time to revisit the idea of "Joe Mauer, leadoff hitter"?

    I believe the full quote at the Twins official website is, "Bartlett... sprained his ankle... sliding home in the 6th inning yesterday... yeah, that's the ticket!"

    Not trying to pick on Arcia, but when he's the #2 defensive outfielder on your team, at this point of his career, that's a problem.

    Hermann was the first guy called up after an injury to an outfielder. That's not exactly an odd "contingency" situation, it happens to virtually every team, probably multiple times per season.

    No doubt there have been MLB power hitters who can successfully hit the other way, like Ortiz -- but that's not the question.

    I don't think anyone was claiming he was "brutal" in a stone hands or letting a ball through his legs sense, obviously. He's been close but awkward on three key plays out in LF already today. ...
