Some Thoughts: DET vs MIN, Mauer

Bookmark and Share 
DET vs MIN:

Both teams lead in their final games of the season. If the scores hold up, the Twins will be involved in their second straight tiebreaker game. Last year, the White Sox won and went on to lose in the ALDS. The tiebreaker would be on Tuesday in Minnesota. If your a Yankee fan, you want that game. Both teams would be forced to use their best players and their bullpen and starters would not be well rested for game 1, which would likely be the next day at Yankee Stadium. Either way, Verlander cannot pitch either the tiebreaker game or game 1 of the playoffs. Advantage Yankees.
Mauer:
At the end of next year, Mauer will be a free agent and Jorge Posada;s career will be near the end. Mauer has said that he just wants to be sure that “wherever [he] ends up, [he] wants to be sure he can win every year.” Normally when a player says that, they end up on the Yankees. I’m not saying it WILL happen, but I feel there is certainly a possibility. Another thought on Mauer is the MVP award. I’ve said that I think Teixeira should win it. But, seeing the run that the Twins have put together and recognizing that Mauer had been out for the first month of the season, I think it’s time to Mauer his long deserved MVP award.

    I agree that Mauer is the MVP and deserves that award. However, I hope that the Twins realize how much he means to their team, and come up with an offer that keeps him in Minnesota where he can remain the “anchor” for the team that has consistently been a winner. He would continue to play for a great manager, Ron Gardenhauer

    Great post again NYColeman. : ) The Twins and Joe Mauer and their sign stealing tactics deserve a look at the MVP trophy. It was amazing to see the run that the Twinkies put together, and if they do lose, it will be so sad. Let’s go Twins, destroy the Tigers!!!
