    Murphy: Mauer's Catching Time Limited in WBC

    I found the whole tone of this story reassuring. Mauer seems to understand he doesn't need to try and play hero and catch a lot early:

    "The WBC's a great event, a great opportunity. I'm excited for it. But I've got to get ready for my guys, too," he said. "I'll try to be as ready as I can. I won't be in midseason form or anything. I'll go out there and try to prepare myself as best I can knowing also April 1 is when we get going."
    I'm also glad Torre is reinforcing that message. Maybe it'll sink in and this 120 games nonsense will fade away quietly.

    Mauer will probably DH as much as he catches. He'll get lots of ABs. Can't have one of your best hitters sitting out.
