In what way is Joe Mauer "above Mattingly"?

he's about 6" taller.

If it's fire you want, the Twins should have kept A.J. and drafted a firey pitcher instead of a catcher.

That pitcher would have been Mark Prior, he hasn't pitched in the majors since 2006.

With how paranoid Gardy is about pitch counts, Prior would have never been able to throw enough pitches to become injury prone like he was with the cubs.

If you take 152 games divided by a five man rotation, you should get about 32 starts per year. Mark Prior had 19, 30, 21, 27, and 9 in his five year career averaging about 6.2 innings per outing. With a 3.51 ERA, 3.1 walks per nine innings, and 10.4 strikeouts per nine innings, he might have averaged around 100 pitches per outing by my best guess. Isn't that about what Gardenhire shoots for? I'd say his health track record was, at best, about the same as Mauer.

Same complaints, different number (bullseye) on the back.

But at least he helped his team get past the 1st round of the playoffs.

Ummmmmmmm..........I don't think so. Unless Joe is going to double his last 10 years of stats in 4 years. Mattingly put up his numbers while only playing 14 years. Mauer has already played 10 years, but nice try.

Gladden had some good post game comments today concerning the state of the team. Mentioned that as he looks at every player on the roster, there's not a single one of them that he sees as the "alpha male" type personality that a team needs.

Mauer probably can't help that he isn't that type so not necessarily a knock on him from that end other than the 20/20 hindsight of realizing that the contract they gave him has very good chance to go down in history as a bad one for the team, especially if he becomes a position player other than catcher. That seemed to be the draw to him that catchers don't typically don't provide those type of stats. Move him anywhere else other than middle infield and his power and rbi numbers are such that he's not likely even close to the best player in the league at any of those other positions.

wish i could find the stats that show the run differential with mauer in the lineup this year compared to him out of the lineup. saw them on the twitter and they were amazing.

thing about mattingly is if he were playing here today, you'd be screaming the same thins about him as you are about mauer. he put up his best numbers by far in his mid and early 20's - the rest of his career was very average.

      I’m going to have to take you again. 29” today. Been getting decent fish on the other end

      While you can’t count on seeing them whenever you want like a landmark, serendipitous, random, and very cool things can be seen on Lake Vermilion seemingly all the time.  This year I’ve seen...   *A black bear swimming causally across the lake in the middle of Niles Bay one quiet morning   *What appeared to be a golden eagle on the south shore of Frazier Bay, noticeably larger than even adult baldies   *Watched a loon on my Livescope dive from the surface straight down into 35’ of water and start busting thru deep bait balls in the middle of Head of the Lakes Bay   *The Neowise Comet in the northern sky last month (don’t worry if you missed it - we get another chance to see it in 7000 years)   *A bald eagle dragging about a 10lb fish - thought to be a pike - up onto shore to eat it right in front of someones cabin N side of Pine Island.  The fish was so much heavier than the eagle she had trouble dragging it.    Surprises seem to be around every corner on Lake Vermilion.  Any one care to share some special encounter you’ve had on the lake?

      The Walleyes are in their full summer patterns now. Our Leech Lake Fishing Guides are finding the walleyes in a few different places using a few different techniques. The key times of the day are the low light periods which has been an important factor for catching these fish on calm sunny days.   Trolling the flats has put mid summer Leech Lake Walleyes in the boat. The main idea here is to cover ground using crank baits and find the active fish. Aim to move the boat at about 2 mph and getting your lure of choice within 2 feet of the bottom. Don’t spend too much time on on spot even if you are marking fish. Our Leech Lake walleye guides have had the best luck running # 5 Rapalas in the bleeding copper flash or bleeding hot olive color. If you are finding the fish a little deeper switch up to a #7 to keep that lure in the strike zone.   When using this method be sure and target the flats where there is weed and gravel mixed in. Duck point and goose island are great spots to start when pulling these cranks. 9 to 12 feet of water has been the most productive area for us. The other technique that has put walleyes in the boat is lindy rigs and moving slowly on or near break lines. Walker Bay has plenty of structure for this method and we have been focusing on the south end. Leeches and crawlers have been working the best in the 10-16 feet of water range. With the crawler a green or brown floating jig has worked well. Try to keep the boat moving under 1 mph and closer to .5 the better.   Have fun.... Leech Lake Guide Service

      I only fish the east end ,but your deeper idea is correct. Fish are running 25-35.  Crank baits are best right now ,but rigs were getting them this AM. Might want to run bottom bouncers and spinners with a crawler. Every day is different lately so keep looking. Good Luck

      It was a beauty...20” long and would guess 4 1/2+lbs. It was released right after the picture. My wife caught that one In late May in 10 feet of water.
    • Wakemupwalleye
      Any help on the walleyes would be great. Been up here a week and caught my share of 13 and below but just can’t get on anything with size. Quite honestly not marking anything. Feel like I’ve tried everywhere. Have they gone deeper? I’ve been fishing reefs that normally hold fish. I’m on the west end but will fish anywhere

      Went dock skipping again yesterday with a friend near Zimmerman and it was still effective.  Chartreuse with black flake has been the go-to color in that murky water.
    • Better Than Working!
      How big is the first one? That is a mighty fine looking fish! I am jealous!
