little joe mauer can hit

Let’s take a moment and reflect as my favorite catcher Joe Mauer leads the league in batting average after going 4/4 against the Mariners last night.

We Twins fans have to take what we can get since apparently winning frequently isn’t allowed so far this year.

Because of the Twins and their struggle to get some wins on their side, Joe Mauer isn’t doing so hot in the All-Star voting. One of the best defensive catchers in the league AND the most consistent player behind the plate (according to percentages!) should surely be ranked more than #5 among American League catchers, wouldn’t you think?
