Fatigued, seriously? Catching 3 innings and never running beyond first base? He's had nothing but time the past 2 months to build LE endurance, but he's fatigued and HE decides when he catches again. Unbelievable.

Take it easy Joe. When you are ready go out there and have some fun but be safe.

At $23 million a year, you would think he could hire a good PR guy to teach him how to avoid making everything he says and does irritate his fan base.

Whos running the show (Twins Baseball) Its not the manager or the front office, so it must be Joe. So dont hurry back Joe, your lack of leadership is not needed on the team.

The article says he's been out since April 12 due to a left leg injury?? Is this new information/clarity on what has previously been described as "bilateral leg weakness" or is that a typo?

Fatigued after 3 innings? Really?!?! Hasn't he been rehabbing for the past 2 months? Does that not include some cardio work? Good Lord. The Twins are not telling us something here. Myasthenia Gravis perhaps?

That does not sound promising.

New nickname: Joe Meow-meow-er.

Take it easy. Everybody doesn't have to have an automatic negative reaction to all things Joe. It's his first time catching in a couple months, it's normal to be fatigued immediately following. Haven't any of you gone for a short run after a full winter off? I'm sore for two days. Then the next run feels better, and so on. If he doesn't catch for another three days because he is still too fatigued, then it is something to be concerned with. That being said, I think he should have tried bunting with two strikes to get on base.

he should try being a carpenter, then he can learn about fatigue, what a sissy.
