    Yah he leads the AL with best batting average. He will be a star. It's a good thing he panned out even though I had doubts. As well with Liriano who has done great for us lately

    Umm, leading the league in average. It's all good .... :lol:

    As he should, Joe has been tearing it up all season.

    Currently hitting .377 after going 4-5 with 5 RBI last night against the Dodgers and the Twinkies winning 15 of their last 17.

    Keep it up Joe.
    'Course, Justin Morneau and good pitching are the biggest reasons for this win streak, IMHO.

    Hitting a punchless .377 is cool and all (I just bought a Joe Mauer t-shirt), but the MLB MVP is not someone who's 4th on his team in RBIs and 5th in HRs (tied with the now-released Batista).

    =Z=

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    honestly though do you think mauer's more valuable to his team's sucess than papelbon is?
    Uhhh yah.. Mauer is there basically every game.. Papelbon is amazing yes.. But he comes in only at the end of games.. Not saying it's not important to close games.. But Mauer is amazing catching behind the plate and amazing at the plate getting on base..

    But with that being said he is not gonna get MVP.. You need more then average to get it.. And the Twins might not make the playoffs and that's huge in the MVP votes..

    He should definitley get some votes.. But won't get it..

    Pujols, Carlos Lee, Ichiro, Mauer, A few pitchers here and there, Ortiz, Rios, etc..

    That's just a few names there.. I could go on for days for people who could get it.. Not Mauer, Not Papelbon...

    There is not a snowball chance in hell he wins it this year. You can't compete with people like Ortiz, Manny, A-Rod (Even though he had a bad june) If he wins it this year I will personally give everyone on this site 20 bucks. Im not saying he is a bad player, but first, he doesnt have much power and second of all he plays for the Twins who do not have a big enought market.



    Thank you Josdin for the sig

    Re: Joe Mauer for MLB MVP?

    I do not think he should get MVP, but he should at least make the all-star team and Ozzie is going to choose A.J Perzinski for the all-star game.


    The Twins have a great nucleus of young talent to build around.

    Santana, Liriano, Mauer & Morneau
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.
