Nope I support the free market system that rewarded a guy based on his play...and I reward opinions that are backed up by something {nm}

Is there a bigger wimp in professional sports right now than Joe Mauer? I don't think so. HarryWarden Aug 26, 10:21

Aww...did Mauer steal your lunch money? {nm} Paul2k Aug 26, 10:25

Nope, instead he's stolen 23M from the Twins for the next 8 years of constant injuries and no personality {nm} HarryWarden Aug 26, 10:28

The Twinkies were willing to pay him that much for that long. Blame the GM and ownership for throwing that much money at someone who plays Paul2k Aug 26, 10:35

He wasn't willing to learn to play First Base until recently HarryWarden Aug 26, 10:42

How do you know that he doesn't give a crap about playing hard? That he doesn't offer leadership? Do you talk to him? Are you in the locker Paul2k Aug 26, 10:58

But at least Cal was out there playing every game. I'd even take someone like Brett Favre, though a diva, you could count on him to play {nm} HarryWarden Aug 26, 11:03

Must be nice to throw an opinion out there without ever backing it up with anything useful {nm} alfpaul Aug 26, 11:14

So you support money-grubbing players who don't give it their all? Normal people would be fired if they were out as much as he has been {nm} HarryWarden Aug 26, 11:15

Backed up? Just look at the number of games he has missed. There's no excuse for that when you're being paid like he is. HarryWarden Aug 26, 11:19

Like lets take my opinion on your points alfpaul Aug 26, 11:24

Do you think they'll fire the coach? {nm} HarryWarden Aug 26, 11:27

eh, not from the area and don't follow the team alfpaul Aug 26, 11:33

I wonder how long it'll take them to fire Gardenhire. The Vikings fired Childress even though he had won the division the year before. HarryWarden Aug 26, 11:14

if he gets fired, cubs should pick him up {nm} islander Aug 27, 06:56

If he plays hurt, goes 0 for 4 and the injury gets worst, how does that help the team? {nm} Antibody Aug 26, 12:53
