Never should have allowd the prima donna to dictate his rehab schedule in the off season. They pay him 23 million, they should have said screw the rehab and done surgery right away last fall so he could have been ready by spring training. Too much coddling of these wimps. A lot of these pro athletes have no toughness. Must make the oldtimers that were not papmered cringe.

So old softie is still ailing. This guy has no pain tolerance. What a wimp. Glad he is getting paid huge $$$$$ to sit on his behind.

Send Mauer to his home in Florida. Perhaps two weeks worth of laying on the beach will rehab him.

Nothing like paying an injury prone catcher $23 mil/year. Can't see how this gets any better over the next 8 years.

How about an injury prone catcher who can't hit more than a single?

Sending Hacker down might have been a mistake. He did an acceptable job for the Twins and pitched well with Rochester. Everyone likes Hoey's power pitching, but Hacker might be the more reliable guy.

Why don't other teams have key players going down with the flu and bilateral leg weakness?
