Wednesday Morning Links: Mauer, Cheaters, Pranks, Racism, and More

This awful weather this week is bringing back shades of last season. I remember working three games against the Tigers where the game time temperature was in the 40s every day. That sucked. Phil Mackey wrote about Joe Mauer and said that we should see him for the player he is, and he's pretty darn similar to Tony Gwynn, Rod Carew, Paul Molitor, and Wade Boggs. All are in the Hall of Fame. I think Mauer will be just fine. Michael Pineda pitched a game against the Red Sox with obvious pine tar on his hand, and he was not ejected, suspended, nor did the world combust because a supposed...

Charley Walters: Twins' Joe Mauer frustrated by umps' ball-strike calls

Historically, major league catchers, when batting, have tended to be beneficiaries of borderline ball-strike calls by umpires. That's because catchers spend a lot of time working closely with umpires, many times developing nice relationships.

Indians 7, Twins 2: Familiar Story as Pitching Falters and Bats Fall Silent

A good start was up-ended by two bad innings. By the time the Twins and Indians were finally able to take the field, the game had already been delayed by more than two hours. Minnesota responded quickly by coming out of the gate quickly; Brian Dozier doubled and moved to third on a Joe Mauer fly out, and then scoring on a sac fly from Josh Willingham. Chris Colabello followed up by doing what he so often did in 2013 when flashing his power: he took an outside pitch, went with it, and launched it to the right field side of straightaway center for a solo home run. Mike Pelfrey was, for five...

Twinsights: Despite slow start, Joe Mauer is ‘feeling great’ at the plate

CHICAGO -- Joe Mauer had no idea his season-opening hitless streak had reached 10 at-bats before he singled through the shortstop hole in the fifth inning Thursday. Turns out that was twice the length of Mauer’s previous longest season-opening drought. He went 0 for 5 at the start of 2006 in Toronto before his first base hit – a single to right off Josh Towers. “Is that what it was?” Mauer said after serving as designated hitter for the first time this season. “I didn’t know how long it’s been, but it’s always good to get that first one under your belt, that’s for sure.......
