Perhaps I'm out of the loop on this one but when the hell did Joe Mauer become a slugger? This afternoon in the Twins mauling of the White Sox, Mauer hit his 8th bomb of the season. 8th! He missed the entire month of April. What the hell is going on? His career high for homers in a season is 13 and that was accomplished in a year he played 140 games and accumulated 521 at bats. Last year in 146 games he hit 9 homers. Through 19 games this year he has 8. Someone give him a piss test.
