Mauer power

On Tuesday evening my gal & I went to our first Twins game this season as part of our partial season ticket package!

Joe Mauer is now hitting .500 this season (he missed all of the month of April due to injury) after going 2 for 3 with a two-run home run in a 6-2 win over the Detroit Tigers.

While Mauer was circling the bases after his third inning homer, I realized that next season will be the final year of his current contract. Meanwhile the Yankees' franchise catcher, Jorge Posada, will be 38 years old in August and has been injury-plagued this season and last. It's never an ideal situation for the rest of Major League Baseball when the Yankees have needs.

Translation: Sign Mauer to an extension. NOW!!!!!!!!
