    I think whenever you have a player who has won multiple batting titles and an MVP award who has also had some injuries, health will always a concern. So yes, I am concerned about Mauer's health going into the season and probably always will be. However, I am much more concerned about Morneau. I so hope he can overcome this and get at least somewhere in the vicinity of his former production.

    Joe gives us far more production from catcher than "league average," so we're better with him catching. The problem we had last year - even when Joe was in the lineup, no matter where we put him that day - C, 1B or DH - we didn't get "league average" play from the other two positions.

    Oh to be a young man dreaming.
    I'm hoping you're being sly here, yes? His name is Ramos and we got Capps for him in a trade, who we now overpay and lost two draft picks for doing so.
