Custom Card of the Day: Mauer Edition

Kurt Suzuki has every right to be disappointed about the fan reaction to him in Minnesota. Though, to be honest, whoever has to follow Joe Mauer as the day-to-day backstop the season he switches to first is just asking to be called a disappointment himself.

For a good 10, 9ish seasons, Joe Mauer was one of the best catchers in baseball. He hit well, he played like a champ, he racked up gold gloves and MVPs, and he became a household name in baseball. Hell, he made the cover of an MLB The Show. That's a definite milestone.

Now, after becoming the first baseman, he may be a little shaky, but he's still Joe Mauer. His sheer presence on the field is getting people to Twins games this year, and that says something.

I'm just happy he's having a decent season so far, because he's a great player that deserves good seasons.

Coming Tonight: A Reds Pitcher that is playing well.
