Mauer has never been a flashy player. People forget that. Singles aren't memorable and Mauer is a singles hitter. I was one year below mauer in high school. He was not a typical athlete. First, because every thing he touched turned to gold and second, because he was a nerd. He'll be in the Twins HOF and for a few years was a lock for the MLB HOF. The Twins had no choice when they signed him. He literally allowed them to build their new stadium. Without Mauer I think Twins get contacted.
