They pointed to where to sign the contract and Joe couldn't write fast enough lol. The move to Target Field has killed him mentally just like any lefty bat in there, unless you're Jim Thome. The controlled dome environment was a hitters paradise, I played their enough to realize how awesome hitting in there was, no sun, no wind, no helicopters,jets,rain, no nothing, just a pure hitters park and opposing teams struggled at times in their defensively. Joe could reach left field easier to the seats, now 95% of those are F-7's. Not catching is hurting him more than helping him also at the plate, seeing the pitches and learning the ump's zone for the day etc. he used those little things to his advantage and should. He'll be an Edgar Martinez soon enough, without power. Runs about as fast also. Regardless of parks the double play killers and strikeouts have nothing to do with the park, it's not being crisp and feeling it at the plate, makes me wonder about some illegal substances that he and morneau maybe were dabbling in b4 the serious testing came about. You can't say I feel great better than ever and perform like he did last year.

Well he can go back into hiding, maybe next year as he's on waivers right now but anybody looking to pay 23 mill for 127 K's, 10 bombs, 65 RBI's and .265 ?  He had 600 at bats this year my word where's the damage ? Led the league as a lefty GIDP. So he'll be back with 3 years to go. The hero or zero game, the must win last wkd and our 3 hitter went 0-4 with 3 K's so he wore the hood in what became our most important game of the year vs. a righty, that loss= season over. If he doesn't go back to catcher idk what to think, but thankfully this seasons over without Ervin on the playoff hill we were doomed anyway.
