Joe Mauer

Oh there is zero doubt about it. Both Mauer and Morneau were juicing for at least a few years. Bodies were very noticeably bigger and stronger (Morneau especially) and numbers off the charts. A lot of players got off the juice within the last few years when $hit started to hit the fan.

agree with the lol. Most men are in better shape at 25 than they are at 31 even if they work out every day.

Naive.

P.S Most men gain weight as they get older not the opposite. Also most baseball players are in their prime at age 30.

Did you see how big Justin Morneau was during that mvp year? Yeah he decided to loose a bunch of weight in his late 20's thinking it would help his game after an mvp season.

Believe what you want. It is well known that far more mlb players were using than the public could possibly imagine. If you think your precious Joe is too much of an awe shucks guy to do what everyone else was doing that's fine.

Please explain his mvp numbers and all the home runs for the one season? He has how many home runs this year 2? LMAO Oh yeah its just a mental thing...

Wake up.

My opinion of guys that do roids (my op really means nothing ask the secretary at my work), is they should go to jail for theft. He just stole 15 million $/yr from Pollad and the fans. Then back down to mediocre. Stealing plain and simple. Worst of all they know they're doing it for the dollars then they leave their employer with not getting what they paid for. Pathetic. Think about it, no way would he get over 10 mill/yr if it weren't for that one year. "Twins will never fork out that again for a career year player", kfan guest.

Look at Ryan Braun. Not a massive guy by any means and he got busted. Had an MVP year too. Nobody on the planet thought this guy was a user especially after he had come out condemning it. Mauer and Morneau are just lucky they never got caught. But at least they got paid.

A line occurred to me the other day: Now that he's a first baseman, if the over/under was set at 1 for the number of all-star games Mauer makes the rest of his career, what would you take? I think I'd lean towards the under.

As a 1b he's going to need to do much more to be an all star than as a catcher.

Not sure about him juicing but do question it om Morneau. He seems an awful lot skinnier than he was when he was having the big years. Not to take anything away but until the concussions Justin was on pace to be in running for best ever as a Twin.

Mauer was never on "roids"...you need to actually lift weights and work-out for them to do any good as far as power is concerned. Mauer has been on record of NOT EVER being a work-out warrior. (See bi-lateral leg weakness)

Look at Joe...he has skinny arms and his shoulders don't fill out his jersey. They never have.

Joe is just "soft"...in all aspects. Mental toughness, leadership, and IMO, his physical shape as well.

Twins need to cut their ties with Joe now....the contract, the expectations, and more importantly, the "face" of the franchise. He is living up to none of the above anymore.....

These young guys remind me of the '87 team. Joe has NO place on this team going forward. His contract will hold this team back for a decade and I think every body feels the same way.

Get what you can for him and move on...23 Million can buy a lot of pitching for these young guys moving forward.

Mauer is NOT THE FUTURE!!

zep,

The main problem is finding someone who would be willing to take on that contract.........I can't think of many teams. I guess maybe the Yankees........they have lots of money and like to throw it away on occasion.

Any team that would trade for Mauer would expect the Twins to pay a nice chunk of the massive contract and we all know the Pohlad's wont do that. Tough to give $20+ million to an under performing 1st baseman who cant hit for power

If he went to another team who needs some base hits, maybe they're willing to pay something midrange -- I don't know off the top of my head I'll just say 13 mil. The twins pay the other 10 mil, they're still saving 13 million per year. The twins can then spend that on pitching and be in a better position (IMHO) than they are now.

the twins aren't going to pay somenoe 10 million a year to play for another team. let's get real. they barely pay anyone 10 million a year to play for them!!

Plus Joe has a no trade clause in his contract... he isn't going anywhere until his contract is up and then he will retire.

They have enough money now and still don't spend even it they get rid of his contract things will not change. They make little moves but never a big move .

The problem is there are plenty of players that are making 5 million a year and putting up better numbers than he is. His numbers are absolutely horrible. He is overpaid around 20 mil per year Lol.

+1 and add POOR EYESIGHT. IMO he is not seeing the ball rotation anymore, just swinging at a spot and not swinging aggressively or confidently.

      I can't figure  out how enough heat would form to cause a problem. What part could be getting hot?  That sort of makes sense but then it will start and quit again quite quickly.  I don't  know what engine it has and that's a problem with it.  Finding the parts is troublesome even with Jack's Small Engine.
    • smurfy
      thats the engine on the one i have.
    • delcecchi
      The not restarting for hours....   Could it possibly be an ignition thing where as it gets hot it stops providing spark and has to cool all the way down to start again?     That's the only thing besides flooding I can think of.   Typically, isn't the spark on small engines produced by magnets on the flywheel going by a coil?    So when it quits and won't restart, is it getting spark?      And is the plug wet when it quits?        Has it got the Honda motor or something else?

      That's odd Tom, I have a power washer from northern tool also. Not sure which one but only issues I've had with mine is I had to replace both tires???🙄🙄
    • Tom7227
      Full throttle before I even start to spray.  When trying to restart it pulls easy and I keep the wand open to assure it doesn't get backed up.  I agree it has to be a fuel issue.  But the tank to engine line is a straight shot except for the fuel shut off valve.  When I was replacing the carb the fuel would run out of the fuel line quite a bit until I remembered to shut off the fuel line.   The gas has been brand new non-oxy every time I have tried it.

      When you try to restart it does it pull easy or hard?   When mine has water pressure built up, it pulls hard to start.  I trigger the wand to release the pressure so it starts easier.   Maybe the hours for yours is due to pressure that needs to bleed off?  Hard to tell not being there.     I can kill mine at low throttle just by spraying.  Are you running yours at a high throttle position?  Again, hard to tell without hearing the RPMs of the engine.   Otherwise for fuel, it could be a blockage or venting issue anywhere in the system. If there wasn’t a change in performance with the change of carburetor, the carburetor is probably not the issue.  If it sat with old gas for a while something could be varnished up and the engine starves for gas until it quits.  Taking hours to get enough fuel flowing again to run seems odd if you actually get to run it hard enough to spray for even a few minutes.   Hearing the way it behaves would help a lot for me.   I’ve had pressure washers that you’re not supposed to let idle for extended time without spraying and others like my current one that bypass just fine while it’s running.  I’m just wondering if your killing it on high pressure AND low idle.  Mine will die every time that way.
    • Tom7227
      It is a Powerhorse, the northern tool house brand.  It dies while I am spraying.  If I replaced the carb what more fuel issues could there be?  The carb replacement took about 5 minutes and was extremely simple.

      I retired 2½ years ago.  My wife finally agreed to move up north after she retires the end of 2021.  When she retires there is nothing that would keep us in the cities.  Blaine has been very peaceful over these turbulent times, but I have a lot of buckshot for my three 12ga shotguns just to be safe.  Anywhere from Barnum to Soudan would be fine for us (easy day trip to Vermilion).  Would go as far west as Grand Rapids.  Would love to live on Vermilion but the prices are just too high now.  Best of luck to you.
    • smurfy
      How far north?????🤔😅
    • leech~~
      Wife just retired. I retire next May. Hope to follow you north before the next round of riots and lotting in Brooklyn Center! 👍
