If two blown saves and a Rays walk-off homer weren't enough, the star catcher went on the disabled list and will see a doctor in Baltimore.

Get healthy Joe. You do not look like yourself right now.

Someone will need to talk me off the ledge.

It is time for some honest answers re: this 23 million dollar man. He has been an athlete all his life, and his present position is hard on his body. Sure he is a good handler of pitchers, etc, but we are seeing yearly break-down of his body. Find another position for him, find another catcher, and quit wearing him out. His future as a catcher is poor.

ummm what?

Time to switch positions...this guy gets paid too much to be perpetually injured.

This contract is going to drag down the Twins for years. Worst. Move. Ever.

My buddy pointed out the obvious, you carry all that money around and see if your legs don't get tired.

honnatApr. 14, 11 9:51 PM

huh? I'm not sure I understand this injury. Someone explain how a professional athlete making $23 million per year has weak legs.

Only the Twins... bilateral leg weakness. Leg Weakness (bilateral) Overview What is leg weakness (bilateral)? A person with leg weakness (bilateral) has muscle weakness in both legs. Weakness may be caused by a malfunction of the **BRAIN** (as in Twins Braintrust), the spinal cord, or nerves. These structures transmit signals from the brain, which stimulate the muscles to move the leg.

His bat is too valuable and he makes way too much to be missing so many games every year. Time to change positions or put him at DH and have him be the backup C.
