    How many home run will Joe Mauer hit in 2012?

    Made an informal bet via Twitter on the total number of home runs Joe Mauer will hit in 2012. I say nine. What say you?

    15, with only 3 of them at Target Field.

    I'll give him 11. He seems to be taking his offseason workouts more seriously, especially since he's healthier now and coming off a terrible season. However, there's no way that Target Field will be any more forgiving for him.

    I think that Mauer will play with a huge chip on his shoulder this season. I say 20

    I've been telling people 9-13, so I'll go with 11.

    14. I wonder how many he hit down the right field line at the Metrodome in 2009? Depending on that number, I could go up or down.

    17. Most on the road, of course, but I bet 4 at Target Field.

    Assuming the concrete has dried now at Target Field I'll go with 14.

    I agree with Thrylos98, but 24.

    5 were truly pulled in 2009, so I will stick with my guess of 14.

    I think he can get to about 15, with at least 2/3 coming on the road. I wouldn't be surprised if he gets some disproportionate number of them on the South Side. At Target Field, he's as likely to hit one into the planters down the LF line or to dead CF as he is to pull one.

    I'm going to say 13 but I feel like that might be too much.

    I think Target Field is going to lock him into a gap-hitting doubles mentality, so I'm going low. Nine dingers, with seven to the opposite field.

    If Parker's 9 was the over/under, I'd have trouble picking, but I think I'd take the under. I'll say 8.

    Mauer is back and has his legs under him

    The dome played into his big season but I think he can hit 13-18 a year consistently so ill say 15 and who knows that number could go up a bit the less he catches.
