Joe Mauer

I think he deserves his own fanpost. Ever since being activated by the Twins he has been on fire, with the best stretch of his career. After going 3-3 with 1 BB against Milwaukee today, Mauer is .429/.516/.844 for the year. He also has 9 HR's already , which is only 4 off of his career high. I always have been waiting for him to hit with power and now he finally is with 5 in his last 9 games. Guy is just a natural and very fun to watch. Even cooler for Twins fans is that he was a homegrown superstar in everysense of the word. Just like Barry was for us. I just hope we can somehow get some positional player to come up through the ranks within this decade, it's going to be pretty demoralizing to continue to watch these great pitching performances get wasted year after year because we have a bunch of guys who can't hit. Almost makes one wish we could continue to suck and try to get the #1 pick in Bryce Harper's draft year.
