Mauer Needs MRI

Recommended Posts

I read an article that said he was going to possibly have an MRI today.

If he is out for an extened period of time out chances of getting out of the first round just went from slim to none.

Don't ya worry, we have Butera.....and he's not even half as good as Mauer!

The Twins will die without Joe. Butera cannot hit a thing.

Joe will probably be out for the season. Seems he bumps his toe and its 2 weeks off. Dude needs some conditioning before and during the season. Seems to be a pattern of injuries for Joe and its seems to be getting worse.

The MRI sounds precautionary to me. No fluid etc. You don't mess with your best palyer. In fact, the Twins are careful with every player.

Just in from foxsports.com.......

"The Minnesota Twins say an MRI on Joe Mauer's sore left knee shows only tissue inflammation and no structural damage

Manager Ron Gardenhire says Mauer may need a cortisone shot to help with the pain, but only expects him to be out for a few more days. If he does take a shot, Gardenhire said the reigning AL MVP will miss four or five games tops."

MRI was just precautionary. reports say there is nothing wrong, just a little inflammation.

easy there harvey lee... you seem a little eager to jump on the "run mauer out of town" bandwagon. god forbid the guy gets hurt once in a while. he is only human.

and i don't think it is joe's call on when he comes back from injuries. i think its gardy, our other coaches and upper management that want to make sure we are extra careful with Mauer b/c he is such a large investment for our franchise. they just want to make sure they don't bring him back too early from any injuries and end up making it worse. i'm sure if joe had his way, he would have played in a lot more games this year than gardy let him

I wonder if Mauer and Morneau are wearing matching tampoons. Seriously, these guys got paid the BIG money. Now get your arse out there and play. They can sit on the bench all they want, but they shouldnt get paid their salary for that day then. It should be given to the fans that paid good money to come and see them. Morneau I can see being a little cautious with, but Mauer is just a sally. And where is this "man muscle" he was supposed to get so he could hit homeruns? I think Punto has more muscle than him.

theres a reason mauer didn't choose football and morneau couldn't hack hockey, just like all of joes commercials...mommas boy.

i wonder if they did a national poll if MN fans would be the most negative fans in the country. Morneau has his second concusion, what a wimp, mauer isnt hitting 30 homeruns hes overpaid, maybe you guy didnt know but WE JUST MADE THE PLAYOFFS!!!!

We're also competing for the best record in the American League and all of baseball.

Which is even more impressive when you consider Gardenhire is a terrible manager; Cuddy is the worst player in Twins history; and Mauer is the most overpaid & over rated catcher ever to wear a chest protector. blush

don't forget punto, crain, gurrier, rauch, delmon, span, capps, thome, kubel, blackburn, baker, slowey, casilla, hardy, ulger...

come to think of it, is there anybody on the team that hasn't been ripped in this message board this year?

      Kudos for doing this. I'm sure a lot of fishermen would not have.
    • MikeG3Boat
      I know it has been raining all week but anyone have any walleye reports?  Heading up for the holiday weekend and want to do some fishing.
    • MikeG3Boat
      Partyonpine, Would you be willing to share in what areas you were getting some nice Bluegills?  I am on the east end on big bay and would like to find some good panfish.
    • partyonpine
      Opener and the week after were good.  Not the numbers we normally get but better quality in the East End.  Not surprised on the weights for the Auto City a.  Usually for us we only catch a few slot fish but we averaged 3 a day for 10 days.  2 overs, biggest 27 inches.     Our best luck was 12-16 feet for quality.  When we went deeper we caught more but smaller.  Bass were really starting to heat up.  For me little earlier than normal.  Found some nice Bluegills the day we went after some panfish.  Dock fishing was as many as we wanted per usual.

      We will be up on June 8th for the week. It will be our 13th year in a row staying on the lake.  I hope the walleye are hitting the bobbers by the time that we get there.

      Those are some fine specimens. Great job
    • gimruis
      I'm quite shocked to hear that a walleye tournament is still doing a live weigh in.  Virtually every event these days around here is doing a catch, photo, and release format.   Regardless, nice work.  Congrats.

      On the south end...   A great week of fishing with walleyes and saugers caught in good numbers.   The go-to presentation, again, was a jig and frozen emerald shiner.  Emerald shiners are a staple in LOW and walleyes love them.  Other minnows worked also, but emerald shiners are a favorite of anglers for good reason.   The Lighthouse Gap area, Morris Point Gap and just in front of Pine Island held nice fish in 17 - 21' of water.  Various schools of walleyes and saugers across the south shore.     A quarter ounce jig in gold, glow white, pink, orange, chartreuse, or a combo of these colors tipped with a minnow worked well again.   Some big pike and jumbo perch being caught by walleye anglers. On the Rainy River...  Some nice walleyes were caught on the river this weekend, although most anglers normally head to the lake.  12 - 15' of water is holding some nice fish.   Sturgeon fishing on the Rainy River is closed until the keep season starts up again July 1st. Up at the NW Angle...  Some nice walleyes being caught along with a mixed bag.  12 - 25 feet of water.  Points, neck down areas and bays with warming water were holding good fish this week.    The go-to presentation was a jig and minnow as on the south shore.  A mixed bag as is common around the Angle.

      Nice work!   Here's two words you hardly ever hear anyone say anymore.  "grateful and humbled"   
    • Brianf.
      RLG, thanks for the shout-out!     Jeff and I are still trying to wrap our heads around what happened this past weekend.  We are humbled and full of gratitude  for having won 'The Classic' for a second time.     We practiced through all the rain on Thurs and the wind on Friday and found six different spots holding big fish.  Fishing was good on both days with several 'overs' in our catch...but would it hold up for another day?   We didn't know.     On tourney day, we made a long run to our first spot where I lucked out on a 26.5"er on my second cast.  Jeff followed up with a thick 27" er a few minutes later, which turned out to be the big fish for the event at 7.26lbs.  We finished out our limit and weighed-in at 10:30 am for the welfare of the fish in our livewell.    There were some big weights in this event which would have won in most other years, but - for whatever reason - this was our day.  Everything just went our way.  Again, we are just super grateful and humbled by this success.  We also want to congratulate all the other anglers who did well and give a big 'thank you' to the tournament organizers who put on such a great event!
