Anybody who reads this board OR the beckett boards know you have a bias

I just dont see him hitting .280. I think you should be happy if he hits .250
with 40 RBI's and 8 home runs.

Mike

Joe Mauer is just about the ONLY bright spot of the organization this off
season and is the hot topic among everyone. While a great many people like
Dan
feel he'll win ROY, I think he'll hit around .230 and play terriffic

defense.

I think within 3 seasons he'll be to Minnesota what Kirby was, the guy
everyone
knows by his first name and who brings people out to watch the team.

Mark Prior would have been great in Minnesota, but he wouldn't have been the
local boy home town hero that Joe is, nor would the club have been able to
ink
him. There was no mistake in signing Joe Mauer. I just wish he had 1

season
in AAA.

Mike


I agree with everything you say here Mike. Ideally a half to full season at
AAA would do nothing but help Mauer, but I don't think he will be hindered by
the jump to the big club.

Like I said before, I'm not predicting .350 w/20, but .275 - .290 w/10 hr &
80
rbi is not out of the question. Those type of numbers with his defense are
more than enough to win the ROY.

I will freely admit a personal interest in Mauer's success. I have at least
5
copies of every one of his RC's, along with at least triples of most of the
RC
Parallels (with the obvious exception of a few of the extremely rare issues).

I've also watched him play since he was a 10th grader at CDH.

So take my comments for what ever, but I'm not the only one touting those
type
of numbers.

Johan will fall back to Earth this year

If you go back to his days in the Venezuelan league, you'll see that
Santana has only gotten better. Unlike many young pitchers, his
command, velocity and movement have improved while in the biggies.
He's shown the beginning of an agressive attitude and if he adopts the
"I own home plate - not you" attitude of a Clemens/Pedro, then the
sky's the limit for this guy. If he stays healthy and agressive,
Santana could easily become one of the 10 most dominant starters in
baseball.

those numbers at A ball

That's nothing to be proud of. This is the Brewers were talking about

Probably. Mauer is the next Leiberthal, not the next Piazza.

Dip****...

Jason Stokes played in CLASS A ball last year, for a team called the Jupiter
Hammerheads in the Florida State League.

Now please tell me why the sun rises in the east and sets in the west?

ok bye,

Batting averages and home run totals are higher in the Midwest League
where Fielder plays because the humidity is much lower than in the
Florida State League where the batter is at a disadvantage. By the
way, Jayson Drobiak also playing in the Midwest League hit more home
runs and doubles than Fielder did last season.
